“Into The Woods” at Chatham Players

“Into The Woods”
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine

Classic fairy tales (Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Ridinghood and others) are woven with the tale of a Baker and his Wife, who seek to break a spell of childlessness laid upon them by a crabby Witch. In Act One, a farcical, hilarious romp, the characters plot to get their wishes by whatever means necessary. All seems rosy until Act Two, when a furious Giantess arrives by beanstalk to seek revenge for her husband, whom Jack killed. Events turn serious as the characters learn about community responsibilities, the penalties of greed and the consequences of their actions.
