Boston Conservatory at Berklee to Present Center Stage Production of Into the Woods
Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s Center Stage series will kick off its spring season with the Tony Award-winning musical Into the Woods from March 30 through April 2 at Boston Conservatory Theater.
Following a celebrated revival on Broadway, Stephen Sondheim’s beloved story puts a dark and comical spin on classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Into the Woods tells a cautionary tale in which everyone is delighted that their wish is granted—until the consequences of their actions make them question their motives and relationships.
This production of Into the Woods will be a premiere for Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and will be directed by Associate Professor M. Bevin O’Gara, with music directing and conducting by Professor Eric Stern. This production will be adapted from the book by James Lapine, with music and lyrics by Sondheim.
“It is a thrill to see one of the most celebrated and well-loved musicals of all time come to life at Boston Conservatory,” said Jermaine Hill, interim dean of theater for Boston Conservatory at Berklee. “This production will be a beautiful tribute to the late Stephen Sondheim, who influenced many of us, students and faculty alike, and inspired our love of theater. Into the Woods’ themes of morality, responsibility, and the consequences of one’s actions all resonate as much today as they did when it opened on Broadway in 1987; and our students, under the fantastic direction of Bevin O'Gara and under the baton of the incomparable Eric Stern, will elevate those themes through their performances.”
Into the Woods will be presented at Boston Conservatory Theater, located at 31 Hemenway Street in Boston, Massachusetts, at 7:30 p.m. from Thursday, March 30 through Saturday, April 1 and at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2. Tickets are $25 to $30 for regular seating; $18.75 to $22.50 for senior citizens, WGBH members and non-Berklee students. Learn more and purchase tickets here
