Into the Woods

Accompaniment by Starry Night Chamber Orchestra

May 4th - May 19th, 2018


A Tony Award®-winning musical classic
by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine

Into the Woods reacquaints us with the most enchanting Brother's Grimm folklore, and characters that we not only adored in our youth, but also continue to pass on to our children today. Joining Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and, of course, Little Red Riding Hood, is a childless Baker and his Wife. Of course, no fairy story would be complete without a Witch! 

These familiar tales are retold through a sophisticated, witty, and beguiling storyline with a musical score so dazzling, and full of dark comedic verse so clever, that many critics have hailed Into the Woods as "one of the few masterpieces of our time". Better still is that none of the important cautionary lessons about life's physical and moral hazards from the original Grimm's stories are lessened by this modern recounting of classic "happily ever after” fables. And that's only the first act!

These stories evolved from a desire to better navigate our way through the human experience, and they have retained their relevance because the human experience remains the same across time and culture. The characters in the "after happily ever after" (second act) of Into the Woods are much richer, and will touch you much more deeply than they ever have before, as they come to understand the true consequences of their wishes and the unforeseen complications that came with them. Holding true to tradition, Into the Woods will also leave you to reckon with its own moral of the story – which may not be the one you were expecting.

Director's Note

Humankind has always sought to connect with each other, and we can still learn from these stories, seeing ourselves in the characters. Indeed, as the song proclaims, "we are not alone". The path has been illuminated by the generations who have gone before us, and we will do the same for those who come after.
