Synopsis

One of the greatest musicals of all time returns in triumph to its birthplace, nearly three decades after its world premier at The Old Globe, an inventive new production from the critically acclaimed Fiasco Theater that originated at McCarter Theatre Center and had the New York Times cheering, “I fell head over heels! Fun, poignant and truly enchanting.” Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning masterpiece weaves together beloved fairy tales, then ventures into the unknown territory of life after “happily ever after”. Fiasco Theater, critically acclaimed for their reinventions of the classics, conjures a mythical world of theatrical invention with 10 actors and a handful of musical instruments. An ordinary rope becomes Jack’s famous beanstalk, a ladder becomes Rapunzel’s enchanted tower and the power of transformation creates a beguiling theatre of the imagination!
