Into The Woods
What happens after "happily ever after?" This McCarter Theatre Center and Fiasco Theater production of Stephen Sondheim's Tony-winning musical Into The Woods skillfully interweaves and reimagines several classic fairy tales into one epic story that goes beyond the happy endings to show what happens when a fairy tale world gets real. It's a fresh twist on the Brothers Grimm that brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker, his Wife and, of course, the Witch. But this time around, the beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes come with a price. Sondheim's score features such unforgettable songs as "No One Is Alone," "Children Will Listen" and "Giants in the Sky."
