Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Bean Stalk and Cinderella. These are just some of the cherished fairy tale characters we knew as children--hopeful as they ventured into the forest to find happiness in the ever after...But what happens when you've finished that last page and the book closes? Stephen Sondheim's and James Lapine’s Into the Woods prowl's through our beloved fairy tales with a modern twist. Whimsically following the trails of unlikely friends to find light in the darkest of forests.
Into the Woods offers a whimsically modern twist to classical fairy tales. A wavering Cinderella, conflicted princes, a rapping witch and many more come together, venturing far into a dark forest with a wish to find happiness. Bravery, determination and a bit of magic propel these characters through the tick of midnight. But as the world around them begins to break away from the confines of a fairy tale universe, these unlikely characters have to go deeper into the unknown; forced to recognize that what they want most in the world may have dire consequences.
Into to the Woods confronts the fears of growing up, the battle to establish morality and the powerful relationship between parents and children. It is also a promise, a promise that in this world, even the meekest can make a difference.
