Why See Into The Woods?
FIASCO THEATRE TAKES THE HIT SHOW ON THE ROAD
The Fiasco Theater Company takes Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's cautionary musical masterpiece on the road, hitting Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles , CA , Closed May 14, 2017 . Stripping the show back to just 10 actors and one piano, the flights of fancy of this dark fairytale world will be rawer and more imaginatively played than ever before.
A much-cherished entry in the Broadway canon, Into The Woods first appeared on Broadway in 1986 starring Bernadette Peters and has been revived many times since; it even saw its transfer to the big screen starring Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep.
What is Into the woods about?
A darkly witty show, Into the Woods delves into the fairytale world created by the Grimm brothers. With cameos and vignettes by Cinderella, Jack (of the beanstalk), Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and more making an appearance in the tale of a simple baker and his wife, who have been cursed by the Wicked Witch. As the plot unfolds, we see the consequences of a wish and how they can start of being everything you ever dreamed of, and evolve into the reason for your despair.
The moral of this story? Sadly we all must come to terms with growing up, and happily ever after was only ever just a story.
