The Musical

An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding Hood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch ... who raps? 
They're all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. 

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.  Their quest involves such not-so characteristic actions including swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Jack. 
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. A Giant steps down from the heavens and straight upon some beloved characters. It takes a few lives before the survivors realize that they have to act altogether in order to succeed. Thus, what begins a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
