Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods combines characters from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and other classic fairy tales in a delightfully twisted story of adventure, deceit, misfortune and greed. The Tony Award-winning Into the Woods follows the journey of a Baker and his Wife on their quest to reverse a curse put on them by the Witch next door, forcing them to face the consequences of their actions.
