The Brothers Grimm "go Broadway" in a cockeyed fairy tale with all of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and The Witch. INTO THE WOODS JR. is an engaging and funny musical comedy that twists familiar fairy tales into a brand new story. When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell; swindling, deceiving and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk)! Into the Woods, Jr., is a great way to get young people to think about the stories with which they've grown up and the ethical issues raised therein.
