Lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM
When characters from “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Cinderella,” and “Rapunzel” come together on stage, it is not for a happy celebration. They have problems in their lives. In order to find solutions, they must travel into a dark wood, but as they get deeper inside things only seem to get turned more upside down.
Into the Woods is a brilliant, darkly funny musical from Stephen Sondheim that weaves classic fairy tales into a new story full of unexpected twists and turns. With sophisticated music and some of the best dark humor in musical theater, Into the Woods is a modern classic, delighting and electrifying audiences around the world.
As one of Sondheim’s most popular productions, Into the Woods has received many awards since its 1987 Broadway debut, including Tony Awards for “Best Original Score” and “Best Book of a Musical.” The 2014 film adaptation starring Meryl Streep and Anna Kendrick was nominated for three Academy Awards, while the stage production has been revived countless times around the world.
