Into the Woods is a classic musical about fairy tale characters caught up together while they all desperately try to get what they want. Our production took place in an attic, where an older sister tells a grieving little girl a story. The characters spring to life from her imagination, telling a story free from rules and boundaries, at once melancholy and hopeful.
As a costume designer, I was able to draw the essense out of the character, without concern for time period or genre. It was wonderful creative freedom. The design and production was completed concurrently with Shrek the Musical, in 6 weeks.
Written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine
Directed by Christina Emily Weakland, Gina Fearn and Danielle Sertz
