Ray of Light Theatre presents the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim, with book by James Lapine. Into the Woods interweaves and reimagines several Brothers Grimm fairy tales to consider 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. The original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards, and the cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in the Sky" and "No One Is Alone," took home a Grammy.

Not only was this a primer course in Ethel Merman's place in American Musical Theater History but also a tremendously enjoyable showcase of Miss Blackhurst's considerable talents. Klea is obviously one of the biggest Merman fans around. And now I'm one also. She was funny, charming, brassy with a gorgeous, powerful voice. Great stories, some undiscovered song gems...what's not to love!

About the Ticket Supplier: 42nd Street Moon
During the 1920s and early 1930s, the bright lights of Broadway were known as "The 42nd Street Moon," honoring the theatre's most exciting thoroughfare. San Francisco's 42nd Street Moon--named after the popular Broadway sobriquet--is now in its seventeenth season. To date they have presented 95 rarely performed musicals, as well as several revues celebrating the dazzling legacy of the 20th Century's greatest musical theatre composers and lyricists. 42nd Street Moon makes great musicals sing again by finding (and often painstakingly restoring) "lost" classics. Their productions are fully acted, sung, and performed in an intimate production format with choreography, minimal costumes and set decoration, and accompaniment only by piano or small ensemble. In this way the story, characterization, dance, and music can be enjoyed in its purest form at affordable ticket prices for all audiences.
