One of Sondheim's most enchanting works, Into the Woods follows the stories of the 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. With the words 'once upon a time,' the story begins. We follow Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack (of beanstalk fame) encountering the consequences traditional fairytales conveniently ignore.
"The magical tale winds its way through everyone's favorite Brothers Grimm fairytales flipped upside down...with a hefty dose of reality thrown in for good measure," says Woodlawn artistic director Greg Hinojosa. "Like...what does one do with a dead giant in the backyard? And what really happens when you marry a prince? It's a whimsical, slightly dark story for adults and children alike where happily ever after is just the beginning."
A timeless yet relevant piece, Into The Woods is a rare modern classic. It won several Tony Awards during its Broadway run, including Best Score and Best Book.
The Woodlawn Theatre is San Antonio's historic community theatre, located in the heart of the Deco District at 1920 Fredericksburg Road, just south of Hildebrand. Free parking with security patrol is available.
