So . . . if you take your fairy tales with a dash of bitters, then “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is the stage show for you. Be forewarned: the PCPA production of this magical musical is a tangy mix of sweetness and woe that in the end will satisfy both children and adults.
So . . . Memories. They fade. They soften around the edges. They shift as time reveals new information. They also, in the re-telling, can take on a focus and clarity of detail that probably wasn’t there to begin with.
PCPA promises a spectacular adventure, and thanks to imaginative direction, choreography, lighting and scene design, “The Little Mermaid” delivers.
