Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Kermit Medsker
This 1986 musical from Sondheim and Lapine revisits classic characters of the Brothers Grimm, weaving their respective fates together in a fast-moving tapestry. We join Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), Cinderella, Rapunzel, and their new friends the Baker and his Wife as they find out what happens the day after all your dreams come true. Is there a price to pay for living Happy Ever After?

Cult Following meets Cult of Personality meets Cult. Lazarus Filament′s well-made play lashes together sticks of pop culture, staves of media technology, and iron bars of desperation to prevent identity from escaping. A drama for all those who have loved and lost, love to lose, and fantasize about biting an ex on the neck.
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Nick Hutchison
The season ends much the way it began, as we return to the woods, albeit through an exchange of Sondheim & Lapine’s forest of fairy tales for Shakespeare’s Arden. After becoming estranged from her uncle’s court, Rosalind, her cousin Celia and a court jester escape to the wilds of Arden. Come along for the adventure while they seek sanctuary (and possibly true love), and decide for yourself if “all the world’s a stage.”
