The national tour of Fiasco Theater’s imaginatively stripped-down version of the Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine musical will launch in November.

Here’s how the production is billed: “With only 10 actors, one piano and boundless imagination, this witty and wildly theatrical re-invention is Into the Woods like you’ve never seen it before! This stripped-down, unplugged, thrillingly clever new version includes all the dazzling classic songs like ‘Children Will Listen’ and ‘Giants in the Sky.’ Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what happens when they really do come true.”
