The Ohio Light Opera
Professional Theatre

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine

Show Description:
For more than 60 years, Stephen Sondheim has been a driving force in modern American musical theater—first as a lyricist (West Side Story and Gypsy), then as composer and lyricist for more than a dozen musicals (e.g., Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd) whose intense fusion of music, drama, and characters redrew the boundaries of Broadway, and most recently as the living inspiration behind a seemingly endless, and unprecedented, series of worldwide revivals of virtually all his works. With great pride, and as part of its ever-evolving mission, the Ohio Light Opera welcomes this acclaimed composer to its repertoire with his 1987 hit Into the Woods. Its opening line, “Once upon a time,” sets the stage for a unique excursion into a fairy tale world quite different from anything we have seen. The witch has rendered the Baker and his wife childless, but promises to reverse the curse if the couple can bring her Cinderella’s slipper, Rapunzel’s hair, Red Riding Hood’s cape, and Jack’s cow. All ends happily … but then Act 2 begins.
