Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Into the Woods’ brings to musical life Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and other well known fairy tale characters. In true Sondheim style interwoven is the story of the Baker and his Wife whose longing for a child is thwarted by the Witch next door taking revenge for the Bakers father stealing her beans many years before. By the end of Act 1 all the story lines are seemingly resolved and everyone lives happily ever after. But do they?
A marvellous rap number from the Witch, lovely lyrical numbers, songs to make you laugh and others to make you cry. It is Sondheim at his best.
Not suitable for children under 11
