The Tony award winning "Into the Woods" is a musically brilliant, funny and heart breaking show that takes everyone's favorite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless, yet relevant, adventure...and a rare modern classic.
A Baker and his wife are desperate to have a child; Cinderella despairs of missing the King's ball; Jack’s mother sends him off to sell his best friend (an ancient, milk-less cow) so that they can eat. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey into the shadowy woods beyond their home. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine
