Thump, thump, thump….that’s the sound of my heart kicking into over time in anticipation of seeing Into the Woods on the big screen this coming December. Forget about holiday gifts…this is GIFT ENOUGH for Broad Z!
“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.
Along with the songs the you’ve come to know and love from the Broadway musical, including: “Children Will Listen,” “Giants in the Sky,” “On the Steps of the Palace,” “No One Is Alone” and “Agony,” there will be a HOST of new tunes from the incomparable Steven Sondheim.
