Into the Woods

Oct. 25 - Nov. 3, 2019

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Beth Schachter
Musical Director: Ed Bara
Choreographer: Samuel Antonio Reyes

Sondheim and Lapine bring your favorite fairytale characters together for a timeless, relevant, darkly comic modern classic. The story starts with a wish: the baker and his wife wish for a child; Cinderella wishes to attend the King’s Festival; Jack wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that a witch’s spell is to blame for their troubles, they set off on a journey to break the curse. All the characters get their wish — for a time. But as they soon learn, a wish granted is no guarantee of happiness…

One of Sondheim’s most beloved musicals, Into the Woods boasts a Tony Award-winning score and book that are both complex and enchanting. “Follow the music. It will take you somewhere wonderful.” —NY Times
