Into the Woods

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.

Piano Concert Coming

In two weeks, on Monday evening, July 12, we have the opportunity to hear one of the two Gold Winners from last year’s Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, HAOCHEN ZHANG, from China. Zhang, the youngest participant in the competition at the age of 19, was previously recognized for his prodigious talent as the youngest winner of the 2007 China International Piano Competition when he was 17 years old. A sensitive musician and insightful programmer, Zhang gave his debut recital at the Shanghai Music Hall at the age of five, performing all of Bach’s two-part inventions, as well as sonatas by Haydn and Mozart! He performed with orchestra at age six, and moved to the United States at fifteen to attend the Curtis Institute of Music.

Haochem Zhang has selected a very interesting, but demanding program. To begin, he will perform all four of Chopin’s Ballades. Following intermission we will hear the four pieces, Op. 119 by Johannes Brahms and he will conclude with the Piano Sonata by Alberto Ginastera.
