Lyrics and Composer by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
In Sondheim’s classic musical, well-known fairy tale characters collide, but for Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and Red Riding Hood, together with a childless baker and his wife, ‘Happily Ever After’ turns out to be far from the end of the story.

Whilst all the elements are there – a slipper as pure as gold, hair as yellow as corn, magic beans and of course the curse of a witch – this is no conventional fairy tale. The familiar find themselves in very unfamiliar circumstances in this darkly comic tale.
