Into the Woods opened this weekend at the ArtCentre Theatre in Plano, running through August 28th. Brad Stephens performs as the Wolf and Cinderella’s Prince.
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them further to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from the stories of Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Cinderella, tied together by a more original story involving a baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, most likely taken from the original story of Rapunzel by the Brothers Grimm.
The ArtCentre Theatre is located at 5220 Village Creek Drive in Plano, TX. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $15 each. Wednesday and Thursday performances are half price. Tickets for select performances may be purchased online for $12 each. Alternatively, theater-goers may e-mail Brad to arrange for discounted tickets.
