The McCarter Theatre Center and Fiasco Theater Production of
Into the Woods

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Originally Directed on Broadway by James Lapine
As Reimagined by Fiasco Theater
Directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld

One of the greatest musicals of all time returns in triumph to its birthplace, nearly three decades after its world premiere at The Old Globe, in an inventive new production from Fiasco Theater that originated at McCarter Theatre Center and had The New York Times cheering, “I fell head over heels! Fun, poignant, and truly enchanting.” Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning masterpiece weaves together beloved fairy tales, then ventures into the unknown territory of life after “happily ever after.” Fiasco Theater, critically acclaimed for their reinventions of the classics, conjures a mythical world of theatrical invention with 10 actors and a handful of musical instruments. An ordinary rope becomes Jack’s famous beanstalk, a ladder becomes Rapunzel’s enchanted tower, and the power of transformation creates a beguiling theatre of the imagination!

There will be a sensory-friendly performance for children and adults on the autism spectrum and their families. Learn More
