While the faces and names are familiar, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, and company inhabit a sylvan neighborhood in which witches and bakers are next-door neighbors, handsome princes from once-parallel fables are competitive (and equally vain) brothers, and all the stories intersect through unexpected new plot twists. Stephen Sondheim’s intricate score and James Lapine’s clever, humorous, and ingenious script combine to make Into the Woods a classic American musical bound to appeal to audiences of all ages.
