Time for Sondheim

comment
After just one year into its Eric Rosen-led era, the Kansas City Repertory Theatre is spoiling us. Here we have that dark fairy-tale lark Into the Woods, perhaps Stephen Sondheim's most enchanting work, staged by Tony-nominated Broadway director Moisés Kaufman. Professionally staged Sondheim is rare enough in Kansas City. Better still, this Rep production mixes New York ringers with local favorites Lauren Braton, Kip Niven and Patrick Du Laney. Sondheim's score (and James Lapine's story) is a dream in every sense of the word — it's lovely and whimsical and full of adventure, but it's also haunting and rooted in the primal. This is an event. The show officially opens tonight at 8 at the Rep's Spencer Theatre on the UMKC campus (4949 Cherry). For tickets, call 816-235-2700.
