INTO THE WOODS An Immersive Singalong Experience will Play at Brooklyn Theatre Club Photo INTO THE WOODS An Immersive Singalong Experience will Play at Brooklyn Theatre Club
by Chloe Rabinowitz - Nov 13, 2019

Fractured fairytales hit the stage with an epic story about wishes, family and the choices we make. 'Be careful what you wish for' is the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King's Festival, Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk, and a familiar cast of many others! What begins a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
