Into the Woods humorously combines a number of classic fairy tales into one hilarious, touching, over-arching narrative. A baker and his wife are assigned a number of tasks by a nearby witch; only after completing these duties will they be able to bear children. During their quest to fulfill the witches’ demands, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and numerous other fairy tale figures. The traditional stories are parodied and altered at will, yet the original fairy tales’ sense of wonder and, at times, darkness remains intact.
