Did you catch Into the Woods at the Irving Arts Center last weekend. It was pretty great and tons of people are talking about it. Lucky for you, there's one more weekend to see it, so plan to attend and enjoy a musical journey alongside some of the best loved fairytale characters such as Cinderella, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood.  The story involves a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a witch (who has placed a curse on them) and other storybook characters during their journey.
