Brightstone Productions presents Into the Woods, a musical mashup that intertwines the lives of characters plucked from popular Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Lapine, the story follows a baker and his wife who wish to have a child—Rapunzel—but must first break a witch’s curse, which leads them to meet Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Jack of “Jack and the Beanstalk” fame. The Theater in the Woods is located at the State Botanical Garden and offers general admission seating on wooden benches. Attendees are welcome to bring cushions, snacks and bug spray.
