INTO THE WOODS Fact Sheet

INTO THE WOODS
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Peter Rothstein
Music Direction by Jason Hansen
Featuring Greta Oglesby and David Darrow

Into the Woods is an epic musicalcomedy that incorporates the classic Brothers Grimm fairytales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker, his wife and the witch who has cursed them childless.  In this contemporary twist on the classics, Director Peter Rothstein sets Sondheim’s fairytale mashup in a Bavarian beer garden with nine actors who take on more than two-dozen characters in this highly theatrical tour-de-force.
