Into The Woods is a Tony Award-winning musical which takes audiences on a journey through the tales of the Brothers Grimm.
Throughout the tale, the adventurous duo of The Baker and his wife Cinderella will meet all of the characters you would expect from a Brothers Grimm story. Whether that is Little Red Riding Hood, the Big Bad Wolf, Rapunzel, Jack and the Giant from atop the beanstalk, they’re all here.
Into The Woods will showcase brilliant performances from the best of Sydney’s musical theatre community, many of which are incredible local talents. One such performer is Pyrmont’s own Laura Murphy who spoke to City Hub about the depth of the show.
“Into The Woods is my favourite musical of all time and I know I am not alone in feeling that way. I think that people are drawn to the story because it is based on much-loved fairytale characters and shows us all of the complexities that were never explored in the original story. It takes these once two-dimensional characters and examines their humanity, reminding us that you can’t ‘judge a book by its cover’. Every one of us has desires and damage and reasons behind why we make the choices we make and we all have to deal with the repercussions of our actions.”
This show is set to be the coming out party for husband and wife production company, Bloom Creative Productions. Whilst it would appear to be a big undertaking for a brand new independent theatre company they are certainly prepared and will be looking to lay a solid foundation for future growth.
