The Broadway Musical Home page describes the story of Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim:
"A young maiden
called Cinderella, an abstracted boy named Jack, his mother, the giant he
upsets, a childless baker and his wife, Rapunzel, a couple of princes, a witch,
Little Red Riding Hood, and the wolf all find themselves in the woods, where they
are forced to face their fears, and learn a few lessons along the way.”
The story intertwines and brings a mature twist to the fairytales of old!...and the music is captivating! The music is...Sondheim!
