Romance. Magic. Consequences.

The beloved Tony Award-winning musical allows you to slip into a world where magic beans create a ladder to the sky, Prince Charming is one golden slipper away, and wolves haunt the forest. Filled with soaring melodies by Stephen Sondheim, the master of modern American musical theatre, Into the Woods is a spellbinding musical filled with romancemagic and the unexpected consequences of dreams that come true.

In a unique collaboration between the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Atlanta Federation of Musicians, the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, the ASO Talent Development Programs, and the Alliance Theatre, a regional ensemble of young musicians will accompany the show and provide a visible underscoring of the show’s central message – “Careful what you say…children will listen.”

Audience Feedback


To mark the end of the Alliance Stage as we know it, and to welcome the new era with the start of the big renovation, Pearl Cleage, our Mellon Playwright in Residence, wrote a piece to commemorate this special occasion.

As a spunky gal in touch with nature in the kingdom of Kashoogie, India S. Tyree portrays a unique Cinderella in the world-premiere production of Cinderella and Fella. In between performances, India took a few minutes to give us the inside scoop on her role in the musical.

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
