Into The Woods @ freeFall Theatre (All Weekend)
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning reimagining of Grimm’s fairy tales is a glorious exploration of what happens, for better or worse, when wishes come true. A childless baker and his wife set out on a quest to get the child they’ve always dreamt of, but their hopes collide with those of other fairy tale denizens who have gone into the woods seeking their hearts’ desires. Ultimately the price of a wish come true may be more than any of them bargained for in this modern classic of musical theatre, soon to be a major motion picture. Ann Morrison (Broadway‘s Merrily We Roll Along and freeFall’s Bernarda Alba) brings her inimitable power and compassion to the iconic role of the Witch. With Sondheim’s most accessible score and Lapine’s witty, heartfelt book, this masterpiece asks if there is any such thing as “happily ever after.” Play runs from Oct 11 until Nov 9. Fri and Sat performances at 8pm, Sunday matinees at 2pm and Thursday shows at 7pm. Friday, October 10, freefall hosts a special preview at 8pm. Tickets. freeFall Theatre 6099 Central Ave.
