Description: 
Into the Woods is the imaginative account of what happens when the lives of new and old fairy­tale characters dramatically and humorously come together. Cinderella, Jack (of bean­stalk fame), Little Red Ridinghood, and the Baker and his Wife set out for the forest on a quest to find “happily ever after.” Along the way they meet Rapunzel, a Wicked Witch, a lascivious Wolf, vengeful Giants, a couple of charming Princes, and their own destiny. With wit and wisdom, the authors have given us a parable about the loss of innocence, the joys and sorrows of adulthood, and the price paid for getting the things you really want.
