"Total enchantment. A spellbounding score, witty enough to make old stories fresh for adults, lovely enough to enchant youngsters." -Daily News

"Bewitching... dazzling... triumphant." -New York Post

"Non-stop pure pleasure. A ravishing explosion of color and melody and magic and laughter." -Time Magazine

"[Sondheim's] lovely score -- poised between melody and dissonance -- is the perfect measure of our tenuous condition. The songs invariably follow the characters' thinking patterns, as they weigh their options and digest their experience. Needless to say, that doesn't make for traditional show-stoppers. But it does make for vivacity of another kind. And Sondheim's lyrics...are brilliant." -The Washington Post
INTO THE WOODS, with book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, premiered in San Diego, California at the Old Globe Theatre on December 4, 1986. It ran for 50 performances. The musical later opened on Broadway on November 5, 1987 at the Martin Beck Theatre. The production closed on September 3, 1989 after 765 shows, though most of the original cast reunited for a tenth anniversary benefit performance on November 9, 1997. A national tour ran across the United States from November 1988 to September 1989, with a longer residency at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
