Travel into the enchanted world of giants, magic and fairy tales with the Blue Devil Productions’ screening of “Into the Woods” on March 27.
“Into the Woods” is a musical by Stephen Sondheim that meshes the four well-known tales of Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Jack and the Beanstalk together. The main story tells a tale about a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) who are trying to start a family, but the witch (Meryl Streep) casts a curse of infertility onto the baker. The witch makes a deal with the couple to lift the curse if they bring her certain items scattered throughout the fairy tales.
As the items are collected and each of the characters settle into their happy endings, the world is turned upside down and they must all work together to repair the damage.
The movie is filled with humorous quips and a singsong mentality mixed with a darker environment than the traditional Disney fairytale.
Forget everything you think you know about these tales and dive “Into the Woods!”
The BDP screening of “Into the Woods” is on Friday, March 27 in Applied Arts room 210 at 6 and 9 p.m.
