Music and Lyrics by

Stephen Sondheim


Imagine an ambivalent Cinderella, a bloodthirsty Little Red Riding Hood, a Prince Charming with a roving eye, and a witch who raps – they’re all here in Stephen Sondheim’s “fractured fairy tale” about the quest of a baker and his wife who’ve been cursed with childlessness by The Witch next door. To secure some special items required to break the spell, they swindle, lie and steal from the fantasy characters we’ve loved from childhood. Everyone’s wish is granted in Act I, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them in Act II, forging a moving lesson about community responsibility underlined by Sondheim’s magical songs, including Giants In the SkyA Very Nice PrinceEver AfterYour FaultNo One Is Alone, and Children Will Listen. This timeless yet relevant musical is a modern Broadway classic!
