The Palo Alto Players production of “Into the Woods,” which opened last week, is set to run through May 8 at the Lucie Stern Theatre.

The musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine brings favorite fairy tales together in a Brothers Grimm mash-up that looks past the “happily ever after,” revealing the complications of life in an avalanche of bad deeds, disappointment, adultery and death.

Los Altos Stage Company’s presentation of “Catch-22” is scheduled to run through May 1 at Bus Barn Theater.

Written by Joseph Heller more than 50 years ago, the comedic “Catch-22” ranks among the most celebrated works of American literature. The play, based on Heller’s book, features black humor, an unusual narrative structure, surrealism and a not-so-heroic protagonist who struggles to deal with the insanity of war and concludes that the only sane response to it is not to participate.
