Featuring a Tony Award-winning book and score by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods brings together favorite fairy tale characters from Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Jack and the Beanstalk. Their stories are woven around the tale of a baker and his wife who are childless because of a witch’s curse. When they all head into the woods for their wishes to be granted and to find their hearts’ desire, they discover there are dire consequences to their happiness.
