When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed by the Witch next door, they embark into the woods on a quest to reverse that spell. Along the way they encounter an ambivalent Cinderella, an aggressive Red Riding Hood, a rebellious Rapunzel, a too-trusting Jack, and a couple of not-so-princely Princes. But when everyone's wishes are granted, the consequences of their self-centered actions come to haunt them. Eventually they learn a moving life lesson about working together, the stories we tell our children, and the real meaning of "happily ever after."

"Everything you learn there will help when you return there." - from Into the Woods

"A wonderful muddle of Grimm fairy tales . . . extraordinary lyrics and subtle, yet enormously complex." - L.A. Times
