Into the Woods
Originally broadcast as part of the American Playhouse series on PBS, this video captures a performance by the original cast of the popular Broadway musical. With songs and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Lapine, who also directed the stage production, Into the Woods humorously combines a number of classic fairy tales into one 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 give birth. 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. The score, winner of Broadway's Tony Award, includes such songs as Children Will Listen, Giants in the Sky, and No One Is Alone. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

    Quircky and's Sondheim at his best.


    If you are into offbeat and fun this a great choice for a night in. It feels like you're watching an actual stage production, which you are, and the acting and costuming is excellent. This is retelling of fairytales meshed succesfully together as only the likes of Sondheim or Roald Dahl could accomplish.

    This movie is a classic. Great story and great message. It was a long production, but every minute was enjoyable. A must watch.

    I had the DVD version, and was relieved when I heard they were going to put it on Blu-Ray as well.
