Into the Woods  | 

January 26 — January 27

Into the Woods is a lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables, with Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine bringing the cockeyed fairytales to life on stage featuring all of your favorite characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch. In a landmark partnership, the Playhouse will collaborate with the high school students and teachers of Pasadena Unified School District to present Into The Woods with students working alongside theater professionals in creating their own special production.

Recipient of the 1988 Tony Award for Best Original Score and the 1989 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, “Into the Woods blends imagination and playfulness in its own very special proportions” and follows “a path strewn with wit and the beguiling songs we’ve come to expect from Sondheim.” – Newsweek

Into the Woods is made possible by the generous support of the Helen and Will Webster Foundation.
