‘Into the Woods’

October 25 2015 @ 2:00 pm

Whether you saw the movie or missed it, here’s a chance to get your dark fairy tales live on stage. Point Park University’s Conservatory Theatre is performing Into the Woods, the spooky Stephen Sondheim musical that was released last year as a film starring Meryl Streep as The Witch. More than a few Sondheim aficionados consider Into the Woods their favorite. The musical’s book, by James Lapine, mashes up a variety of fairy tales (“Cinderella,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Rapunzel,” etc.) into a chilling saga of what can happen when people get what they wish for. Into the Woods opened on Broadway in 1987 and has become a cult classic, oft produced elsewhere. With musical theater being a specialty at Point Park, one can expect the Conservatory Theatre—the school’s student company—to make quite a good show of it. 2 p.m. Ends today.  At Pittsburgh Playhouse, 222 Craft Ave., Oakland.
