What happens after Happily Ever After? In Sondheim and Lapine’s beloved musical retelling of the Grimm classics, a parade of familiar folktale figures find their way “Into the Woods” and try to get home before dark.
Nominated for 10 Tony Awards, this is Sondheim and Lapine’s timeless story, as you’ve never seen it before! See the edgy San Francisco Playhouse production before this classic gets the Hollywood movie treatment in the 2014 Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep film.
