Now showing, Closes 22 Mar 2015
A show that knows how beautiful and ugly, how ordinary and strange, the world always is. At least for people who look and listen, as this production so affectingly compels us to do.

The Roundabout Theatre Company presents a very special production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's cautionary masterpiece. Stripping the show back to just 10 actors, and one piano, the flights of fancy of the the fairytale world will be rawer and more imaginatively played than ever before.
Much cherished, Into The Woods first appeared on Broadway in 1986 and has been revived many times since, becoming a part of the American musical theatre canon. It is currently being made into a movie by Disney, starring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp.
A darkly witty show, Into the Woods invites us back into the universe created by the Grimm brothers and their stories, that we easily inhabited as children. With Cinderella, Jack (of beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and more making an appearance in the tale of a simple baker and his wife, who have been cursed by the Wicked Witch. As the plot unfolds, we see the consequences of a wish and how they can start of being everything you ever dreamed of, and evolve into the reason for your despair.
The moral of this story is that unfortunately, we all have to grow up sometime, and happily ever after is usually just a myth, told with typical Sondheim flair.
