A childless baker and his wife cannot have a child until they follow the bidding of the witch next door to get a cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold. Good thing, then that they've got neighbors named Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Cinderella to help them before (and after) Happily Ever After.Written by
We owe Sondheim a debt of gratitude for allowing this stage performance of "Into the Woods" to be Filmed. It is filled with outstanding performances (Joanna Gleason won a Toni). Sondheim's words and music move us back and forth between laughter and tears. "Into the Woods" is the ultimate fractured fairy tale: traditional fairy tales are mixed together and then filtered through the lens of late 20th Century reality. Wonderful stuff
