Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Gary Griffin

When a childless baker and his wife set out to lift their family curse by journeying into the woods, they encounter Jack (with his beanstalk), Cinderella (and her prince) and Little Red Riding Hood (and her wolf)! These familiar characters find themselves in decidedly unfamiliar circumstances and must brave the darkness of the woods in an effort to break the curse, conquer their fears and find out if what they’ve always wished for is what they truly want.

This epic fairy tale adventure is reimagined in a newly-configured Nichols Theatre to be staged “in the round,” drawing audiences into a theatrical experience unlike anything you’ve seen at WT! With its celebrated score, stirring script and an extraordinary team of artists bringing it all to life, Into the Woods launches WT’s 2019/20 Season as the musical theatre event of the summer. Chicago and Broadway Director Gary Griffin (PARADE) returns to stage this Tony Award-winning musical about fairy tales, family and what happens after “happily ever after.”
