Digital Theatre has announced today the three new productions that will be available to stream and download at One of them is the acclaimed Open Air Theatre’s production of INTO THE WOODS, the first musical show included in the catalogue of this British website.

INTO THE WOODS tells Brothers Grimm´s stories and gives them a dark and humorous twist.  The popular tales of Red Ridinghood, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), Cinderella and Rapunzel are interwoven with that of the Baker and his Wife and their quest to have a child.  However this re-telling goes beyond ‘happily ever after’ as the familiar characters find themselves in unfamiliar circumstances and hopes and dreams are questioned and revisited.   

Celebrating Stephen Sondheim’s 80th birthday, the 2010 season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre closed with Sondheim and Lapine’s 1987 musical Into the Woods, co-directed by Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel. With designs by Soutra Gilmour, movement by co-director Liam Steel, musical supervision and direction Gareth Valentine, lighting by Jon Clark, orchestrations by Chris Walker and sound by Mike Walker, INTO THE WOODS became the highest selling single production at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.  Earlier this month it was announced that INTO THE WOODS has received two Laurence Olivier Award nominations - Best Musical Revival and Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical for Michael Xavier.
