Smash-hit company Fiasco Theater bring their critically acclaimed reinvention of Into the Woods to the West End. Following a hugely successful premiere in New York, the US theatre group earned rave reviews for their imaginative take on the well-known musical. Now, the musical is set to dance into London’s Menier Chocolate Factory for a summer season.

A well-known classic by legendary composer Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, Into the Woods is the fairy-tale musical that weaves together the stories of Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella and Rapunzel. With the Baker and his wife on a quest to have children, Into the Woods is one of Sondheim’s most popular musicals and is regularly performed in London, featuring songs such as “Children Will Listen” and “On the Steps of the Palace”.

Much like the West End’s favourite comedy company Mischief Theatre, Fiasco Theater is an ensemble company created by graduates of the Brown University/Trinity Rep M. F. A. acting program. Hailed for their big imagination, Fiasco Theater present Into the Woods with just ten actors and multiple musical instruments to bring Sondheim’s classic musical to life. In 2015, the group received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Revival.

Directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, Fiasco Theater’s Into the Woods features musical supervision by Matt Castle, choreography by Lisa Shriver, set design by Derek McLane and costume by Whitney Locher, with lighting by Christopher Akerlind and sound by Darron L West.

Into the Woods was last seen in London at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and also enjoyed a 2014 film remake, starring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp. With the Menier Chocolate Factory having an exciting track record of musicals, including Funny Girl, Into the Woods is sure to be yet another hit! Don’t miss out on the bewitching production, running from July 12th to September 17th 2016.
