A fresh spin on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods interweaves and re-imagines the stories of a number of beloved characters to examine whether "happily ever after" is really even possible. Unable to bear children, a baker and his wife are lured into completing a number of tasks by a witch who promises to grant them their wish. During their journey, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards. The cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in the Sky" and "No One Is Alone," took home a Grammy. It's set to get the Hollywood movie treatment this year in a film starring Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. Learn More

We loved the entire, wacky, thought provoking show! The fast paced, quick switching scenes, and costumes reminded us of Beach Blanket Babylon, but with a message. Terrific sound effects and lighting. Superb acting. Go see it, but remember to dress warmly and bring blankets.
