Into The Woods

December 18, 2014—April 12, 2015

Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre

Venture back Into The Woods as Roundabout Theatre Company presents the acclaimed McCarter Theatre Center and Fiasco Theater production of the Tony Award-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine. With only 10 actors, one piano and boundless imagination, this witty and wildly theatrical re-invention is Into The Woods like you’ve never seen it before!

Including dazzling songs like “Children Will Listen” and “No One Is Alone," this stripped-down, thrillingly clever new version made Ben Brantley of The New York Times fall "head over heels.” Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant in the sky at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what really happens after they come true.
