Into The Woods By: Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine

April 4, 5, 6 (3 p.m. matinee), 10, 11, 12 ~ MainStage Theater
This musical intertwines the plots of several fairy tales, taken mostly from the Brothers Grimm, following them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Rapunzel,” and “Cinderella,” as well as several others. The musical is tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, and their interaction with a Witch and her curse on them. Oh, and there’s a giant.
