One of Sondheim’s most popular works, the powerhouse Broadway musical Into the Woods brings together the classic Fairytale characters from The Brothers Grimm with the Broadway magic of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine to create a rare modern classic. The story follows a baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, they set off on a journey to break it. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
Director Ryan Hull returns to the Coaster stage for this production having previously directed Around the World in 80 Days at the Coaster Theatre. Before returning to Oregon he completed the actors training program at the Circle in the Square Theatre on Broadway in New York City.
