Spellbinding musical

Stephen Sondheims musical Into The Woods runs at Pieter Toeriens Theatre On The Bay from Wednesday January 30 until Saturday March 2. Follow the trials and adventures of a collection of well-known fairy-tale characters including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Red Riding Hood as they all go into the deep, dark woods on separate quests. Their paths cross with sometimes amusing and sometimes alarming results. This is a wicked and cautionary fairy tale for adults and explores what it is to be human, to long for something, to wish for something more and to deal with the inevitable loss. Tickets range from R175 to R375. Book through Computicket or call 021 438 3300. Graeme Wicks, pictured, plays hapless, dreamy Jack.
