Reimagining Hansel and Gretel in Los Angeles

You know the story: brother and sister leave a trail of breadcrumbs behind them as they walk into the woods. They’re lured into a cottage by a witch who wants to turn them into dinner. Hansel and Gretel has terrified and delighted children for centuries. Now the classic German fairy tale has gotten the LA treatment.
