Into the Woods (PG) is showing at the Connaught Cinema and Studio, Worthing from Friday January 9th until Thursday January 22nd.
Based on Stephen Sondheim’s acclaimed stage musical, Into the Woods brings together the heroes of many fairy tales – including Cinderella (Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (with Johnny Depp as the Wolf) and Jack (of Beanstalk fame) – in a tale about a baker and his wife (Corden and Blunt).
Cursed by a witch (Streep) to remain childless, the couple must venture into the forest and locate magical objects that will break her spell, encountering various fantastical characters along the way.
The irreverent tone of their quest and accompanying songs eventually gives way to more thoughtful messages about the dangers of wishful thinking and avarice, and the whole is a wonderfully engaging entertainment.
Show times: Monday January 19th at 3.00 pm, 5.45 pm and 8.30 pm, Tuesday January 20th at 12.15 pm, 3.00 pm and 5.45 pm, Wednesday January 21st at 12.15 pm, 3.00 pm, 5.45 pm and 8.30 pm and Thursday January 21st at 12.15 pm and 3.00 pm. .
