When Stephen Sondheim first brought "A Little Night Music" to the stage in 1973, the musical's elegance and charm led to four Tony Award wins. Now its Sweden-set tale of a tangled web of affairs comes to Arlington in a new production at Signature Theatre.

For Alina, light is unbearable. To escape, she seals herself in a darkened room for months -- only to find an unexpected source of hope and humor. "My Beautiful Darkened World" is an original musical inspired by the most unlikely of subjects: the shingles virus. It's also inspired by a true story.

Teaming with pianist Paul Rosenberg and vocalists Taunya Ferguson and Carlic Hyunh, Lipowicz brings this original theatrical cabaret show to the Highwood Theatre in Silver Spring. [less-]

Ever wondered what happens after "happily ever after"? Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's "Into the Woods" artfully explores the answer, skillfully interweaving several classic fairy tales into one epic story that goes beyond the happy endings to show what happens when a fairy-tale world gets real. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker, his Wife and, of course, the Witch. The beloved storybook characters take on unexpected complexity as they discover that wishes come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music -- and their future in a world where everything doesn't always end happily. The young actors of Laurel Mill Playhouse, ranging in age from 8 to 18, bring to life this humorous and heartfelt chase through the woods in a junior version perfect for families. [less-]

Two thoroughly modern operas that reach into the storied past for inspiration, "The Juniper Tree" and "Bastianello" come to The Barns in an all-new production courtesy of Wolf Trap Opera. "Bastianello", a 2008 one-act comedy-drama by John Musto, is based on an Italian folktale and follows a newly-married groom on a search for a more foolish family than his own after they embarrass him at his disastrous wedding. Philip Glass and Robert Moran wrote the score for "The Juniper Tree", a grim Grimm fairy tale that somehow serves up a happy ending out of a story about a Wicked Stepmother who murders her stepson and cooks him up in a stew. "The New York Times" called it "charming and chilling, a children's opera for thinking children (also known as 'adults.')" The talented company performs this double bill in English with projected text. [less-]
