After a sellout production in 2014 at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre, we are delighted to bring you this comically dark masterpiece of a musical where well known fairy tales interweave to create a magical world which suddenly turns upside down revealing the 'Grimm' darkness of these traditional stories.
Beware of what you wish for...
Performed in the round, you will feel that you too are in the middle of the forest with our ensemble of 17 larger than life characters drawn from modern day Britain, complete with a cocaine-snorting Rapunzel, a paedophile Wolf and an evil stepmother straight from Towie.
Being based around fairy tales Into The Woods naturally has a timeless quality and I wonder if this modern treatment was entirely necessary as this production seemed to have lost it’s charm and magic
Ambitious, inventive revival that puts a new spin on a Sondheim classic
This show has its moments, but it’s not quite magical
A nice attempt at a new concept and an easy watch, but if you are looking for something to inspire you, this isn't it
