INTO THE WOODS Extends Through June 29 at The Lyric Stage
Due to unanimous critical and audience acclaim, INTO THE WOODS has been extended through June 29, with performances Wednesdays & Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm & 8pm, Sundays at 3pm. This is the FINAL possible extension due to the start of our summer teen program, Lyric First Stage.
The Lyric Stage Company of Boston presents INTO THE WOODS, with Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and Book by James Lapine. The Lyric's production is directed and staged by Spiro Veloudos with music director Catherine Stornetta.
In Sondheim & Lapine's delightful fractured fairy tale musical, a Baker and his Wife embark into the woods on a quest to reverse a curse laid on them by the Witch next door. Along the way they encounter an ambivalent Cinderella, an aggressive Red Riding Hood, a rebellious Rapunzel, a too-trusting Jack, and a couple of not-so-princely Princes. But when everyone's wishes are granted, the consequences of their self-centered actions come to haunt them. Eventually they learn a moving life lesson about working together, the stories we tell our children, and the real meaning of "happily ever after."
"Everything you learn there will help when you return there." - from Into the Woods
