Into the Woods
Presented by New Village Arts
Ten years ago, New Village Arts produced its first musical. Now, on the cusp of their 20th season, NVA returns to the musical that started it all. Into the Woods brings well-known fairytale characters to musical life. Interwoven through their tales is the story of a baker and his wife, whose longing for a child is thwarted by a mischievous witch. Stephen Sondheim’s songs, seamlessly melded to James Lapine’s text, are perfect expressions of the complications of living in modern society and the difficult choices we encounter on the paths of our lives. Into the Woods premiered on Broadway in 1987, winning three Tony Awards.
