TWN SAYS…. “I wish,” two words that have inspired some of the greatest fairy tales of our time, comprise the theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s classic musical, Into the Woods. A baker and his wife, a girl in a red cape, a boy with magic beans, and a maiden longing to escape her life of servitude, all seek to make their dreams come true. A Broadway smash and now a major Disney motion picture, Into the Woods proves that reality may not be far from the fairy tales we all love.
