Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim
I have to remember that Im reviewing the book, and not the film adaptation, but frankly, this is my least favourite musical up-to-date, and I only read the first half.
Because what is the nonsense of the second half? No traditional happily-ever-after? An unfaithful prince? A more real-life, completely un-magical ending? Excuse me what?
No no no no no, no thank you.
When I enter a fairytale, I expect a fairytale ending. End of story.
The script was fun to read for the songs, but having seen the movie first, I couldnt make myself read part two, not when I knew how it ended.
And speaking of the movie, it was frankly really boring. I just couldnt get into it, and then frankly disliked it after the second half. Sorry Meryl Streep.
Into the Woods
Sign in. A witch tasks a childless baker and his wife with procuring magical items from classic fairy tales to reverse the curse put on their family tree. Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales in a musical format that follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel-all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them. A Baker and his wife live in a village where they all wish for something they can't have. The Baker and his Wife wish for a child, but they soon find out that because of a family curse they can't have any children until they find multiple things for the witch that cursed them in the first place. A whimsically enticing visual adventure following the intertwining path of unlikely characters on a journey deep into the darkness and light found only in the woods.
