This is one of my favorite musicals!!!

Produced by The Theatre Company

Weekends August 6-15

Stephen Sondeheim’s award-winning musical fairy tale on TTC’s stage for summer 2010! Since the Broadway debut of Into The Woods, when Broadway superstar, Bernadette Peters, brought acclaim to the show with her performance as the Witch, it has become a favorite of theater actors and audiences alike! The original Broadway production garnered three Tony awards in 1988—a year dominated by The Phantom of the Opera—and two more Tonys for the 2002 Broadway revival! Inspired by Bruno Bettelheim’s 1976 book, The Uses of Enchantment, the Sondheim classic interweaves the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. Using main characters from Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and Cinderella, the musical is tied together by a more original story of a Baker and his wife, and their quest to start a family. The show includes references to numerous other well-known tales.
