Review for Into the Woods:

Into the Woods takes the classic tales of the Brothers Grimm and intertwines them into a modern classic that explores family, the consequences of wishes that come true, and the search to break a witch's curse. Sondheim and Lapine have created a Tony award-winning book and score that is both enchanting and haunting. 

The second act may not be suitable for children.
