Photo Flash: 'Into the Woods' at 5th Street Theatre
Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning fractured fairy tale Into the Woods opens tonight, Thursday October 25 and runs through November 10 at The 5th Avenue Theatre.
"Into the Woods tells the story of a Baker and his Wife who journey into the woods on a quest to lift a witch's curse. On the way they cross paths with Little Red Ridinghood, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and a menagerie of other fairy tale characters. They pursue individual wishes until their stories become entangled in unexpected ways - revealing what happens after 'happily ever after.' Stephen Sondheim's wickedly witty score weaves a magical spell with such bewitching gems as 'Children Will Listen,' 'Giants In The Sky' and 'No One Is Alone,'" state press notes.
