Home / Past Productions / 2010 – present / Into The Woods – October 2015

Sondheim’s “Into The Woods” was our ‘award winning’ 2015 show, performed between 26th and 31st October at the Duchess Theatre

The show, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, weaves together the plots of several well known fairytales such as Little Red Ridinghood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella and Rapunzel along with the original tale of a childless couple of a baker and his wife and explores the story of how all of these characters quest for their happy endings … and then what happened to them once they got them!

The musical originally premiered in 1987 and has seen a resurgence of interest with a film adaptation in 2014.

Presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LTD on behalf of MUSIC INTERNATIONAL NEW YORK.
