James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.


In this 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 Little Red Riding Hood, a rebellious Rapunzel, a too-trusting Jack, and a couple of not-so-friendly 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 will our children, and the true meaning of ‘happily ever after’.
