Into the Woods 2020

Into the Woods 2020

By Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine

Directors: Dean Drieberg and Sonya Suares
Music Directors: Peter Rutherford and Ned Wright-Smith

In a small village fringed by a vast forest, a collection of familiar fairy-tale characters are wrestling with unknown curses, untold desires and unnamed danger. There's no avoiding the dark and dissonant wood, into which they all must venture to pursue their dreams and confront their demons. As they bumble forth in blind pursuit of their own ends, their tales entangle and entwine until the consequences of their individualism mount to threaten their very existence.

Nominated for 10 Tony Awards (including Best Original Score and Best Book) and 6 Olivier Awards in its debut seasons in New York and London, Into the Woods is Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's most famous and frequently revived work. Acclaimed Sondheim repertory company, Watch This, approaches it anew with a limited season of performances 16 - 26 September, 2020 at Meat Market, North Melbourne.

Presented Sep 16th - Sep 26th, 2020 at Meat Market - Flat Floor Pavilion
