The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family, and the choices we make. In Into the Woods, Lapine and Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, musical.The story follows a Baker and his wife, as well as Cinderella and Jack, each with their own wishes. A journey to break a Witch’s curse leads to wishes being granted, but with unexpected consequences.
