into the woods
July 2, 2023
Motor coach to Benedum Theater in Pittsburgh, PA to see Into the Woods.
“Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired dark musical comedy, INTO THE WOODS. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Also in the woods, we meet Little Red, who is trying to visit her grandmother, a hungry Wolf, a maiden in a tower with very long hair, and the Princes chasing after their loves. Just when it seems that everyone has gotten their happily ever after, Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant, forcing the community to come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made. Filled with exquisite music and brilliant lyrics, this innovative production is sure to enchant as it ventures beyond “happily ever after.”
