With “Into the Woods” author James Lapine and composer Stephen Sondheim bring beloved storybook characters together for a rare modern classic. Originally directed on Broadway by Lapine with orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, the story follows a Baker and his wife, who long to have a child; Cinderella, who desperately wants to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the couple embarks on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with catastrophic results.
