Tall tales
Broadway has a knack for re-telling classic children’s stories, and one of the early big ones was Into the Woods. Four County Players is mounting Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s multiple Tony Award-winning show in the continued celebration of its 40 seasons. Spinning new angles on fairy tales, the show combines the stories of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, and others, as they face the dangers in the woods—be that witches, giants, or themselves. The staging showcases Sondheim’s beautiful score, including the songs “Giants in the Sky” and “Children Will Listen.”

Through 3/24 $12-16, 8pm. Four County Players, 5256 Governor Barbour St., Barboursville. (540) 832-5355.
