Presents Into The Woods by James Lapine - Show run: July 19-22 and 26-29 - Into the Woods has intertwined the stories of various familiar fairy tales with an original story of a childless Baker and his Wife, who are the focus of the story by attempting to reverse a curse on their family in order to have a child, thus creating an even bigger fairy tale. This fractured and reformed fairy tale follows the tale of everyone looking for their "happily ever after." Sometimes, we find out that what we're after is not always what we need.
