Based on Classic Fairy Tales

Into the Woods was made famous on Broadway with Bernadette Peters and the revival with Vanessa Williams. Fractured tales of a darker hue provide the remarkable context for Into the Woods, which deconstructs the Brothers Grimm classic fairy tales. While the faces and names are familiar, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood and company inhabit a neighborhood in which witches and bakers are next-door neighbors, handsome princes from once-parallel fables are competitive (and equally vain) brothers, and all the stories intersect through unexpected new plot twists. The tale of what happens after "happily ever after." Wonderful songs include No One is Alone and Children Will Listen.
