Follow the Grimms fairy tales characters as they venture into the woods to get their wish and learn the complications of what comes after happily-ever-after.
One of Stephen Sondheim’s most popular works, Into The Woods, is a dark comedy that follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes 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 two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wishes are granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
Content Warning: Strobe lighting, loud sound effects. As is the case with many fairy tales, alongside scenes of magic and wonder, audiences will also experience reference to concepts of consent, sexuality, death, and murder.
