In the first half of this musical journey, Sondheim and Lapine take familiar characters from traditional fairy tales and intertwine their stories through chance encounters in the forest. The second half follows these characters beyond "happily ever after." There, united on a common quest, they re-enter the woods where they must either work together or perish apart. Using children's stories, Sondheim and Lapine have crafted an intricate and delicate parable for grown-ups. As wry and whimsical as it is tragic, the Woods explores the complexities of love, loss, self-discovery and parenting. "Careful the tale you tell… children will listen."
