Into The Woods intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, “Rapunzel”, and “Cinderella”, as well as several others. The show is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to being a family, just like the Grimm Brothers’ Rapunzel. Their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them turns their lives upside down and they are off meeting with the other storybook characters during their journey. Into The Woods covers multiple themes, growing up, parents and children, accepting responsibility, morality and finally wish fulfillment and it’s consequences. The original production won the 1988 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award and the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical and the original cast recording won a Grammy Award. The show was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and won 3: Best Score, Best Book and Best Actress in a Musical.
