Into the Woods

Into the Woods

Off-Broadway
Musical
Among its many rich layers, Into the Woods is a fable about how humans pursue their desires, and what happens when they set aside their individual wishes to create a greater community wish. Directed by Encores! Artistic Director Lear deBessonet, this production ushers in a new annual tradition that brings together Broadway’s brightest stars with a multi-generational group including New York City public school students, to celebrate an iconic American musical and inspire all New Yorkers to find their own way into the work.

SYNOPSIS: Several of childhood's most familiar fairy tales ("Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "Rapunzel," "Jack and the Beanstalk," etc.) are shown to be part of a single story, as woven together by librettist James Lapine and composer Stephen Sondheim. The result is a psychological parable about parents, children and growing up.
