Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and others from the Brothers Grimm fairy tales come to life in the theater adaptation of James Lapine's classic, "Into the Woods".

It's 30 years since the production first hit the stage, and now the Wallis Annenberg Performing Arts Center puts a modern twist on the holiday favorite.
