In celebration of Sondheim's eightieth birthday, the Open Air Theatre season closes with this production of INTO THE WOODS, co-directed by Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel. Perfectly placed within the Open Air Theatre amphitheatre, the musical gives the stories of The Brothers Grimm a dark and humorous twist.
