Into The Woods Opens at Main Street Arts

SAXTONS RIVER, Vt. – A journey through childhood fairy tales – with a twist – is the theme of Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Into the Woods,” which opens Friday, Nov. 10 at Main Street Arts for a two-weekend run.

The music and lyrics by Sondheim and book by James Lapine weave together the plots of old favorites by the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault as they wander through the woods of their fantasies seeking their heart’s desires, but not always finding a happy ending.

Director David Stern has described his concept of the show as a “very unusual” production, with this version asking more of the audience and performers and giving more in return.
