Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Into The Woods

Once upon a time, there was Cinderella, Jack (and the Beanstalk), the childless baker and his wife, and Red riding hood. When the witch (from the rapunzel story)comes over to the baker's house and tells his that to have a much wanted child he needs to make a potion of 4 magical items in 3 days time, this starts a journey into the woods and into the overlapping other fairytales of this magical realm. As he searches for a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn and a slipper as pure as gold (you guess what fairytale each comes from!), the audience must reevaluate ones preception of evil and and good. Into The Woods tells the other side of the magical tales, and prove that not all fairytales have happy endings . . .
