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
Reviews & Ratings
Body Awareness was first produced by the Atlantic Theatre Company (NYC) in 2008. Subsequent runs include the 2010 Boston premiere with the SpeakEasy Stage Company, which produced the play as part of an Annie Baker festival along with Company One (Aliens_) and Huntington Theatre Company (Circle Mirror Transformation_). The New York Times called Body Awareness, which was nominated for the Drama Desk Best New Play award, “an engaging new comedy by a young playwright with a probing, understated voice … its quiet rewards steal up on you!”
