Fractured fairy tales of a darker hue provide the context for the Melodramatics’ second musical, which deconstructs the Brothers Grimm by way of Rod Serling. While the faces and names are familiar, all the stories intersect through unexpected new plot twists as a baker and his wife journey into the woods in search of a cow, a red cape, a pair of golden slippers and some magic beans to lift a curse that has kept them childless. However, after the seeming “happily ever after,” wishes won take a turn for the worse as a giant flounces through the kingdom. Who will survive to see their wish granted and who will perish? Find out in the Melodramatics’ production of Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-Winning musical: Into the Woods!
