Into The Woods

Ahmanson Theatre
135 North Grand Ave Los Angeles

Venture Into the Woods with the acclaimed Fiasco Theater production that became New York's surprise hit of this season. Unanimously lauded by critics and extended twice on Broadway, the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is now on its national tour. This witty and wildly theatrical re-invention is Into the Woods like you've never seen it before, and it's coming to the stage of the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. Including dazzling songs like "Children Will Listen" and "No One Is Alone," this thrillingly clever version made Ben Brantley of The New York Times fall "head over heels." Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant in the sky at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and the tradeoffs sometimes required to make them come true.

"...Fiasco Theater's frisky "Into the Woods," which opened on Wednesday at the Ahmanson Theatre, is as economical a rendering of the Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine musical as it is an imaginative one. A tight budget has set the creative juices flowing. The eager-to-please production overstays its welcome, but its shoestrings delights are manifold."

"...Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine's excellent 1987 musical, "Into The Woods," now on a National Tour, has been imported to L.A.'s Ahmanson Theatre, with a bold production that originated in New York by the Fiasco Company."

"...I am glad this was not my first experience with Into the Woods because I'm not sure this is the version best suitable for getting initially acquainted. In my opinion, however, the true test of any revival or reimagining is if it manages to find a new layer of meaning, or unearth something surprising even to those intimately acquainted with the source material. I definitely found myself paying more attention to different lines and seeing moments and even characters in a new light as a result of this staging. As with any version of the show, an almost lighthearted act one makes way for a much darker, serious act two, utilizing the act break for a tonal shift the likes of which no other musical really attempts. For any fan of Sondheim or fan of inventive musical theater, this Fiasco Theater production is a must-see, and proves that anything can indeed happen in the woods-even woods you know well."
