Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s masterpiece INTO THE WOODS returns to London’s West End in a spectacular revival in 2020.
A dark and humorous twist on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, this Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical interweaves everyone’s favourite storybook characters into a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic.
Be careful what you wish for seems to be the ongoing theme in this comically dark musical, as actions have consequences and sacrifices must be paid.
Featuring the much loved songs Children Will Listen, Stay With Me and No-one Is Alone this enchanting and touching masterpiece was recently made into a smash-hit Disney feature film starring Meryl Streep, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Johnny Depp.
Into The Woods is rumoured to open at The Old Vic Theatre, London in Winter 2020.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse.
Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
