THE LAWYER SHOW 2024: Into the Woods

The Advocate

February 21, 2024

Tickets now on sale. Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine.

James Lapine and the legendary Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the spell. Everyone’s wish is granted, but in the second act the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with surprising results.

Every year, an ensemble of lawyers take to the boards to prove that acting and the practice of law have way too much in common. Lines are learned, songs are sung, audiences applaud – and fun and friendship abound along the way! One of Vancouver’s most exciting legal events and a valued tradition, The Lawyer Show is the signature fundraising event for Touchstone Theatre, a beloved cultural institution and registered charity. Funds raised will go to support Touchstone Theatre’s award-winning artistic programming, outreach activities, and new play development initiatives.
