If you go into the woods today….you will be taken on a full scale adventure where the folk tales of your childhood will be beautifully and tunefully mangled. All the beloved characters that people the stuff of day dreams and nightmares come alive in the glades and dells and shadows of the woods, and, led by their unfulfilled desires, they learn the price of wanting. Every thought expresses a desire, every desire leads to an action and every action has its consequence. The stern moral lessons hidden in the stuff of fantasy and magic are taught, and, for many, the outcome is death. Skilfully plaiting the strands of several story lines as old as the hills into a contemporary folk tale, Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods offers a journey well worth taking…..
