INTO THE WOODS

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine

"Happily Ever After" has never been so complicated.

That's what Little Red, a Witch, Cinderella, the Baker, and his wife discover as they invade one another's stories and find themselves tangled in a web of unexpected consequences. They quickly find this web is too big to untangle on their own and that they must work together to set everything right in the kingdom. Into the Woods reminds us that only together can we defeat the wolves and giants of the world​.
