       《走进森林》是斯蒂芬·桑德海姆和詹姆斯·拉平于1986年完成的音乐剧。其中,詹姆斯·拉平完成故事情节创作,斯蒂芬·桑德海姆完成该剧的音乐歌词部分。这部音乐剧于1986年在圣地亚哥旧环球剧院首演,1987年11月5日在百老汇首演,并在那里获得了多项托尼奖,包括最佳配乐、最佳改编剧本和最佳音乐剧女演员(乔安娜·格里森)。

      Into the Woods is a musical written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, finished in 1986. James Lapine wrote the story, and Stephen Sondheim finished the lyrics. The musical debuted in San Diego at the Old Globe Theatre in 1986 and premiered on Broadway on November 5, 1987, where it won several Tony Awards, including Best Score, Best Book, and Best Actress in a Musical (Joanna Gleason).

        这是一个神秘的故事,结合了格林兄弟的几个童话故事,包括灰姑娘,长发公主,杰克和巨大的豆茎和小红帽。第一幕遵循原始童话故事的大部分情节。 然而,在第二幕中,每个角色之间的冲突开始爆发,故事与原著的设定越来越不同。 大部分的故事发生在树林里。 因此,设计重点是营造树林场景。 将森林与整个故事联系起来是关键点。

       “树林”贯穿了整个音乐剧,包括城镇场景。为了给观众创造情景纵深感,森林将分为不同的层次。故事后半部分发人深省,作者试图展现童话的阴暗面,因此使用冷光和灰色将有助于营造神秘和刺激的氛围。

        A mystery story, combined with several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, included Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and Giant Beanstalk, and the Little Red Ridinghood. Act I follow the majority plot of the original fairy tales. However, in Act II, the conflict between each character begins to breakout, and the story becomes more and more difference from the original setting. Most of the story happens in the woods. Therefore, the design focus on creating the woods scene. Connect the forest to the entire story is the key point.

            The “woods” run through the entire musical, including the town scene. To create the depth of field for the audience, the woods will be constructed in different layers. The plot is meaningful, and the author tries to present the dark side of fairy tales. Using cool light and greyish colors would be helpful to build a mysterious and provoking atmosphere.

        根据故事结构,整体情景分为三部分,以此来展示不同主题的故事。这些小的场景独立为不同的主体,可以独立移动。布景移动图用于展示道具在剧中的移动过程,包括幕布景和大型场景。

      According to the script, the stage is divided into three parts to show different scene. These small scene is separated from each other, and can move independently. Shifting plot is made to show how do furnitures move, including the line sets and large props.

        道具工程图均为可移动的场景。其中场景A,B,C为第一幕在台上的场景,三个场景中的人物在此期间还没有交集,场景相对独立。场景D,E在第三幕中先后登场,演员需要登上台阶随着场景上场。场景F是一直在舞台上的场景,随着情节变化前后移动,演员可从两侧或后面站到场景上,或经过中间的树林(场景F)。

        Set details drawings show the moveable sets. Unit A, B, and C show up in Act 1 Scene 1, and these sets are relatively separated at this time. Unit D and E shows in Scene 3 one by one, and the actors need to go on stage with the set. Unit F is on stage all the time. However, it moves forward and backward with the story developed. The actors can go on stage from the backstairs or the side ramp. These routes will make them look like they pass the woods in the center.

        模型主要是为了展现树林造景的景深,突出神秘的氛围。树林从舞台两侧层层递进,使得演员上场也更戏剧化。中间的坡道也同样有树木景装饰,使得舞台更统一。模型和渲染同样展现了树木深浅的效果差别。

        The physical model emphasizes the depth of field and pops out the mystery atmosphere. The woods go deeper and deeper through the side border. The central unit has trees to increase the unity of the scene. The physical model and the rendering images show the different effects of different woods colors.
