Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine

Stephen Sondheim takes everyone's favourite storybook characters and brings them to life for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results as you should “Be Careful What You Wish For”.
