WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale features cockeyed characters such as an ambivalent Cinderella, a blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood, a Prince Charming with a roving eye, and a Witch who raps! When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Consequences of actions become a prevalent theme. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of "The Princess Bride" becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
