Play no fairy­tale

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Ever won­dered what hap­pens af­ter ‘‘hap­pily ever af­ter’’?

The award-win­ning Broad­way mu­si­cal Into The Woods holds the an­swers and it’s no fairy­tale.

It ties to­gether favourite child­hood sto­ries with an orig­i­nal tale about a baker and his wife who want to start a fam­ily and their in­ter­ac­tion with a witch who casts a spell on them.

Ra­pun­zel gets preg­nant, the hand­some prince cheats on Cin­derella, Jack has a spe­cial friend­ship with his cow, and Lit­tle Red Rid­ing­hood is not as in­no­cent as she seems.

In­cluded in the cast is Free­mans Bay res­i­dent Richard Neame who plays the wolf and Cin­derella’s prince.

The play is show­ing at the Pump­house The­atre in Taka­puna from to­mor­row un­til Novem­ber 17.
