Into the Woods @ Playhouse 1960
Jun 3 all-day
Into the Woods @ Playhouse 1960 | Houston | Texas | United States

Into the Woods

What really happens after “happily ever after?” Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods answers that question, skillfully interweaving several classic fairy tales into one epic story that goes beyond the happy endings to show what happens when a fairy-tale world gets real. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), Rapunzel and more. The beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes always come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music and their future in a world where everything doesn’t always end happily. Be sure to catch this humorous and heartfelt romp through the woods, featuring such unforgettable songs as “No One Is Alone,” “Children Will Listen” and “Giants in the Sky,” when Into The Woods comes to Houston’s Playhouse 1960.

Main Stage Adult  $18

PENN & TELLER

Penn and Teller have redefined the genre of magic while inventing their own distinct niche of comedy for nearly 40 years. From sold out runs on Broadway to Emmy-winning TV specials, Penn and Teller show no signs of slowing down with their comedic acts. As individuals, they are just as prolific. Teller directed a version of Macbeth that toured the East Coast to raves from The New York Times and Wall Street Journal and co-wrote and directed the Off-Broadway thriller “Play Dead.” Penn has written three books, including the 2011 New York Times Best Seller, “God No!”, hosted the NBC game show Identity and donned his ballroom shoes for the 2008 season of ABC’s hit Dancing With The Stars. The comical duo will have the audience laughing the night away in Jones Hall.
