Cinnabar Theater invites guests to see a fresh take on classic fairy tales with James Lapine's, Into the Woods. This play will feature an ambivalent Cinderella, a blood-thirsty little red ridinghood, prince charming with a roving eye, and a witch who raps.
When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results.
What begins a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of The Princess Bride becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories you tell to your children. One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods is a timeless yet relevant piece and a rare modern classic.
