"Wishes might bring problems,
so that you regret them.
Better that, though, than to never get them."
Once Upon a Time, a Baker and his Wife journeyed into the woods on a quest to lift a witch's curse. On the way, they crossed paths with Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and a menagerie of other fairy tale characters. They pursued individual wishes until their stories became entangled in unexpected ways - revealing what happens after "happily ever after." Stephen Sondheim's wickedly witty score weaves a magical spell with such bewitching gems as "Children Will Listen," "Giants In The Sky" and "No One Is Alone."
