This La Belle Époque play, written in 1907 and performed for the first time in the United States in 1967, is directed by Andrew Noble and features a cast comprised of college juniors and seniors.  In his director’s notes, Noble comments, “Feydeau wrote in the tradition of the "well made play" of Scribe and Labiche.

intothewoods prMIAMI—New World School of the Arts [NWSA] college music theater program presents the popular musical Into the Woods, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. Under the direction of James Randolph, this modern twist on Grimm’s fairy tales follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel and other magical characters who come to the realization that what you want is necessarily what you need. “It is the story of all these fairy tale characters after they live happily ever after,” said Randolph. “It’s great material - wonderful characters and a great deal of texture that the students can learn how to play. Plus, it is one of the most done musicals in America. If we want to train our students to be able to becompetitive I think it’s a really great opportunity.”
