* DistinctionWithoutADifference: From when the Witch reveals to the Baker that she claimed his younger sibling as payment for a wish.
--> '''Baker:''' I had a brother?
--> '''Witch:''' No! But you had a sister.



** Speaking of which, the Giantess' relationship with Jack may be a bit MrsRobinson. "And you know, she's big, but you don't feel small" and "She holds you close to her giant breast" after which Jack also echoes LRRH's words that he "knows things now". The part about "Someone bigger than her comes along the hall to swallow you for lunch" is reminiscent of a husband coming home to find his wife with a lover.

* GoodIsNotNice: Or more accurately "Nice Is Different Than Good", as the wolf is very nice to Red Ridinghood initially, the easier to eventually kill her.



* NoExceptYes: From when the Witch reveals to the Baker that she claimed his younger sibling as payment for a wish.
--> '''Baker''': I had a brother?
--> '''Witch''': No! But you had a sister.

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: When the Baker's wife and the Prince have a romantic encounter in the woods, he tells her that "Right and wrong don't matter in the woods. Only feelings." After the deed goes down, she spends the rest of the song wrestling with her conscience before finally rationalizing it.

* DeathGlare:
** The Witch usually gets in a few before the curtain falls, most often when someone says something stupid. (Which is ''often''.)
** Played for BlackComedy when ''everyone'' gives one to [[spoiler:the ''Narrator'' of all people when he won't shut up at a particularly bad time]].


Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: The Narrator, by virtue of not actually being ''in'' the story. [[spoiler:At first]]. Within the story itself, the Witch. Yes, the LargeHam sorceress who kidnapped a young girl is the character with the most common sense. This explains a ''lot'' about how things go so OffTheRails later.

Added DiffLines:

* MusicalisInterruptus: The final lines of "No One is Alone" are usually cut off by [[spoiler: the Giantess' arrival]]. Soundtracks typically keep the lines intact, though.

The show is one of Sondheim's most famous, alongside ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' and ''{{Company}}''. In the year dominated by ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', it was able to snag three Tony Awards, for Best Score, Best Book, and Best Leading Actress (Joanna Gleason as the Baker's Wife). The original Broadway production has since been followed by a notably contentious revival in 2002, as well as numerous productions across the country at everywhere from the regional to the high school drama level.
