Storyline

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 Kathy Li

Brilliance, sheer brilliance
5 July 2001 | by jweatherford27See all my reviews

I loved every minute of it. Bernadette Peters was spectacular, of course everyone has given her a large amount of praise for her performance, but she deserves it, she was the one that stood out above the rest! The best part about Into The Woods is that you can watch it again and again, and it still doesn't get old, and you're still catching minor detales that you missed from the first viewing. This is a definate must for fans of the theatre, and for everybody else.
