I looooove "Into the Woods". We performed this my Sophomore year in high school and we won the "Most Outstanding Stage Crew" Metropolitan Theatre Award for it. I remember whisper-singing the songs backstage. Great musical and story.

This was one awesome play and book. They did it in my school as the play and i saw it and it was awesome. If you are deciding on this book or another one buy this one. Even if you want to save ur money to solve world hunger you should scrap that plan and buy this book. Its worth the millions of lives you take away because of starvation. !!!LOL!!! Enjoy! i know i did

The only thing better than seeing this show, is being part of the production. I was only a freshman in high school, but it was a theatre experience to remember!

Fun play that you just have to love! Great modern day twist on the classic fairy tales. Hilarious, and heart warming.

Into the Woods is an intelligent and downright funny bit of musical theatre. It brings characters from classic fairy-tales (Cinderella, Jack (and the Beanstalk), Little Red Riding Hood, and others) together, all of whom are wishing for something. The book is entertaining by itself and serves to emphasize the wit of the lyrics and dialogue. A wonderful story

This musical is a must-see for anyone who loves fairy tales. There has never been such an incredible combination of classic stories as well as good music. One of my goals is to play 'Jack' in this play. Oh, and the song,'The Last Midnight', great song!
