Synopsis from BCT’s website:
What happens after “happily ever after?”Into the Woodsbrings together some of the most well known Brothers Grimm fairy tale characters to help us find out. While the characters are familiar, their stories intersect through unexpected plot twists.
When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the bean stalk). Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later.
Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning score thrills us with cleverly crafted ensemble numbers as James Lupine’s ingenious puzzle of a story guides us to take a look at the inevitability – and treachery – of our innermost wishes.
What follows is a bold, darker look at what happens after the wishes are granted and the fairy tale ends. What began as a clever diversion touches deeper nerves. Ultimately, the characters end their journey aware of the moral consequences of their actions; each having learned valuable lessons about power, tolerance, personal sacrifice and the strength of shared community.
Winner of 3 Tony Awards, 4 Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy.
