The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family, and the choices we make.
One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into the Woods follows a baker and his wife, who want to have a child - Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival - and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk.
When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
