KENNER, La (press release) – Rivertown Theaters rises to new heights with the upcoming production of one of Stephen Sondheim’s most intriguing musicals, "Into The Woods," on the Main Stage March 15 – 31.
With intertwining of four of their major storybooks’ plots and characters, The Brothers Grimm hit the stage in this epic fairytale about wishes, family, and the choices we make. Journey into the woods with us for this fanciful, visually enchanting show and discover what happens to your favorite, yet tragically flawed fairytale characters before and after the words "happily ever after." Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them with disastrous results. James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece skillfully twists storybook tales and brings the characters together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
