Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales in a musical format that follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel - all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
A whimsically enticing visual adventure following the intertwining path of unlikely characters on a journey deep into the darkness and light found only in the woods, exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, Into The Woods includes songs such as Giants in the Sky, Stay With Me, Agony, Last Midnight and No One is Alone.
It premiered on Broadway in 1987 where it won several Tony awards. A film adaptation directed by Rob Marshall and starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Johnny Depp (among others) was released in 2014.
