Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning fractured fairy tale Into the Woods opens tonight, Thursday
October 25 and runs through November 10 at The 5th Avenue Theatre.
"Into the Woods
tells the story of a Baker and his Wife who journey into the woods on a quest
to lift a witch's curse. On the way they cross paths with Little Red
Ridinghood, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and a menagerie of other fairy tale characters.
They pursue individual wishes until their stories become entangled in
unexpected ways - revealing what happens after 'happily ever after.' Stephen
Sondheim's wickedly witty score weaves a magical spell with such bewitching
gems as 'Children Will Listen,' 'Giants In The Sky' and 'No One Is Alone,'"
state press notes.
