A childless baker and his wife endeavor to lift their family curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter Rapunzel (and her witchly “mother”), Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters, and they all must learn the responsibility that comes with getting what you want. Into the Woods was nominated for ten 2002 Tony Awards, including Hilferty’s first for “Best Costume Design (Play or Musical).” It won the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical.
