In Stephen Sondheim’s imaginative, darkly comical remix of beloved fairy tales, a baker and his wife set out to reverse a witch's curse in hopes of having a child of their own. The couple’s quest takes them into the woods, where they encounter Little Red Ridinghood, Jack and his beanstalk, a cautious Cinderella, a sequestered Rapunzel and a couple of lovelorn princes. Sondheim's lush Tony-winning score and James Lapine's Tony-winning book conjure a world where "giants can be good and witches can be right."

This performance is designed to welcome anyone who might benefit from an adjusted theatre environment—including those on the autism spectrum or others with sensory sensitivities. This performance will feature adjustments to lighting and sound effects, a relaxed theatre environment that allows for movement, designated break spaces, and pre-visit materials. This production is recommended for ages 12 and older.

Place: Ford's Theatre - 511 10th St., NW
