Into the Woods is a cautionary tale about life, love, and loss as it explores the crisis of coming of age in an uncertain world.  Inspired by the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm, composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim and book writer James Lapine upend the “Happily Ever After” trope to unearth the doubts, fears, and longings that undermine prepackaged morals.  Winner of three Tony Awards and both the 1988 Drama Critics Circle Award and Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, Into the Woods is a story for our time.  In our current moment of social unrest and political polarity, this fractured fairytale challenges us to grapple with ambivalence and uncertainty without losing our humanity.
