Music and Lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM Book by JAMES LAPINE
Originally Directed on Broadway by James Lapine Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick
In Sondheim & Lapine's delightfully fractured fairy tale musical, a Baker and his Wife embark into the woods on a quest to reverse a curse laid on them by the Witch next door. Along the way they encounter an ambivalent Cinderella, an aggressive Red Riding Hood, a rebellious Rapunzel, a too-trusting Jack, and a couple of not-so-princely Princes. But when everyone's wishes are granted, the consequences of their self-centered actions come to haunt them. Eventually they learn a moving life lesson about working together, the stories we tell our children, and the real meaning of "happily ever after."
