Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Into the Woods is a storied musical about the unexpected consequences of getting what you want inspired by The Brothers Grimm. The Baker and his wife embark on a quest to reverse the Witch’s curse and bear a child. They head into the woods—alongside Jack, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood—but things get a little complicated. Will they find a happily ever after?
