Wishes, The Witch, and The Woods collide in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's beloved Tony Award-winning musical. “Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in this timeless, yet relevant, piece...a rare modern classic. In the Brothers Grimm-inspired musical, when the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse, among the wishes of Cinderella, Jack-and-the-beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and the Witch herself. Everyone's wish is granted, but sacrifices must be made due to the consequences of their actions as the community comes together to save each other and their kingdom. 

“We’re thrilled to be at the Morris Museum’s Bickford Theatre for an exhilarating summer production. Into the Woods is everyone’s favorite musical because it intertwines the stories we have all known and loved for generations,” says Angelo De Fazio, Woods director.
