"Total enchantment. A spellbinding score, witty enough to make old stories fresh for adults, lovely enough to enchant youngsters."
– Daily News
Once upon a time, in a marvellous multiverse of musical fairy-tale heroes and villains…
The Witch, the Wolf, the Giant and the Stepmother have unleashed pandemonium on the kingdom. Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame) and the Baker assemble to avenge the evils dealt to the people. On their mission to save their world, they venture into the woods.
But their path is booby-trapped with blips, as they get entrapped by Daydreams, ensnared by Desires, and enslaved by Wishes. And then things get reeeally fee-fi-fo-fummed-up…
The late, legendary Stephen Sondheim’s spellbinding music and words combine with James Lapine’s wild and witty script in this ingenious, subversive mashup of our most beloved fairy stories. Full of heart, humour and honesty, this magical musical has much to teach us all about growing up, growing old, love and marriage, parents and children, action and consequence, good and evil, life and death.
Whether you’re 10 or 110, we promise you a journey into the woods you will not soon forget.
Nominated for 10 Tony Awards, Winner for Best Book and Best Original Score.
