Brigitte Losey plays Little Red Riding Hood and Steve Allhoff portrays Wolf in Los Altos Stage Company’s “Into the Woods.”
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning musical “Into the Woods,” scheduled through Dec. 23 at Bus Barn Theater, reaches new heights of inventiveness thanks to the talents of Los Altos Stage Company.
Elements from classic children’s fairy tales like “Jack and the Beanstalk” are incorporated in the story. The dark tale is not necessarily child’s play, however, as it includes a curse (not the profane kind), a character’s going blind, death and other less lighthearted elements.
