The musical Into the Woods was written by Stephen Sondheim with a book by James Lapine. The story first appeared in the
late '80s and was inspired by Bruno Bettelheim's 1976 book The Uses of Enchantment, which allowed for the fusion of Brothers
Grimm fairy tales and others exploration in a production history that has seen such stars as Vanessa Williams, Laura Benanti,
Judi Dench and more flock to be part of the enchantment.
Into the Woods first debuted at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre in 1986 and eventually moved on to Broadway with Joanna
Gleason and Bernadette Peters' as the two leading ladies. Since winning three Tony Awards in a year dominated by the "Phantom,"
theatre tickets to catch Into the Woods have exceeded all expectations - with adaptions in
Los Angeles, London's West End, a national tour and a television production.
Though this play may have been the ticket to Stephen Sondheim's success, its languid humor and original cast brought the
play serious acclaim once it appeared on Broadway, earning it Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book and Best Actress. If
