  • 6:30 PM Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Red Dragon Theatre
  • 7:30 PM Into the Woods, Goodrich Theatre - Orpheus Theatre Presents Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim Book by James Lapine An ambivalent CINDERELLA? A blood-thirsty LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD? A PRINCE CHARMING with a roving eye? A WITCH who raps? They're all among the cockeyed characters in this fractured fairy tale. When a BAKER and his WIFE learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the WITCH next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from CINDERELLA, LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD and JACK. Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. The characters realize that they have to work together to succeed and what begins a lively, irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
