Into the Woods

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Ken Savage

August 8–17
The Rembe at A.C.T.’s Strand Theater

When you’re young, stories like Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood make you feel like you can take on the world. But the real world isn’t a fairy tale. In Stephen Sondheim’s beloved musical filled with witches, giants, and magic beans, storybook characters collide as they set out on their individual paths. Join us at The Strand this summer as we journey into the woods and discover that for every hero, there’s a villain, and for every wish, there’s a consequence.
