One of the Most Popular Musicals in Sondheim Repertoire Hits the Houston Stage
You've probably seen the recent film adaptation "Into the Woods", now come and see all the amazing bits that were left out including a number that was cut from the original broadway show! Into the Woods is one of, if not the most, popular musicals in the Sondheim repertoire.
Into the Woods is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. The musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from "Little Red Riding Hood", "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Rapunzel", and "Cinderella", as well as several others.
The musical is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family (the original beginning of The Grimm Brothers' Rapunzel), their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.
This Into the Woods is the inaugural production of the annual Mentoring Program at Operativo Houston. We encourage you to come see young professionals work alongside aspiring young musical theater actors!
