A rare modern classic, Into the Woods follows Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack—of beanstalk fame—and a baker and his wife as they take a journey into the dark and shadowy woods to make their wishes come true.

It’s a magical, bewildering place full of witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers, where familiar fairy tales get tangled up together. Wishes are granted here, but at a price. Even storybook characters must face the music—of which there is plenty—in Sondheim and Lapine’s irreverent and beloved Tony Award–winner.

In South Boston, this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, bingo is a night on the town, and tough, sharp-tongued single-mom Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Scrambling to make ends meet, she looks up an old flame—now a successful doctor—and risks everything in the hope he’ll help her make a fresh start. An insightful comedy of class and culture, this recent Broadway hit about how the twists of fate determine our path is both darkly funny and surprisingly touching.
