I have returned from a work trip and need to make things right with the 3-year-old princess in my house. My daughter Leah has always loved to hear stories while snuggling with a parent. And, as do most preschool girls I know, she has a fascination with tiaras, dainty slippers, ball gowns and happily-ever-afters. Where she got it, I do not know. But when your child is 3, imaginative and imperious, you go with what works. So I cuddle up close and begin the story of Rapunzel -- she of the hair long enough for a prince to climb.

Venturing into the woods at Whitemarsh Park leads to Bowie Playhouse, where 2nd Star Productions is offering a magical version of Into the Woods. Nothing is quite what it seems in this surprisingly current 20-year-old musical, in which familiar fairy tale characters assume adult dimensions to deal with a threatening environment they have helped to create. In playwright James Lapine's woods, we find characters that seem funnier, scarier and sexier than remembered, with Red Riding Hood and the wolf, a prince for Cinderella and another for Rapunzel, Jack of the beanstalk story and his mother, and a witch - all interacting with the childless baker and his wife.

Oh, the plot rings familiar bells, what with a long-tressed maiden, her domineering witch of a mom and a smitten prince eager to win her. But the Hood imagination uses the tried-and-true story line as a mere point of departure.Mary Armour's Rapunzel is a nasal-twanged waif with ugly glasses who is forced to answer the phone all day at her mother Gadzooka's corporate witch franchise: "Gadzooka's Spells Charms and Incidental Voodoo.

Pigtown party The second annual Pigtown Festival will feature a little bit of old and a little bit of new on Saturday from noon until 5 p.m. The festival celebrates the Pigtown neighborhood, in Southwest Baltimore, which got its name from a historical relationship with the nearby B&O Railroad Museum. Around the turn of the century, pigs were herded from the railroad terminal and Union Stockyards to South Baltimore, and legend has it that families along the route would reach out of street-level windows to snatch a pig for the night's meal.

Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre's outdoor season is off to an enchanting start, taking us "Into the Woods" of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine - a place where nothing is quite what it seems, and familiar fairy tale characters assume adult dimensions. On Friday's opening night, as if on cue, the rain stopped at the 8:30 p.m. curtain time. But the rains were followed by strong winds that swirled Rapunzel's hair and rippled the burlap curtains. I'm told the weather scenario was repeated Saturday.

We are becoming, Uncle Sam says, a nation of sloths. We eat too much, exercise too little, and now a grotesque 64 percent of us, the Centers for Disease Control reports, are overweight and possibly on our way to an early grave. There's no denying that's bad. But truly sloth-like? Not at all, says Carey Rowsom, head curator of the rainforest exhibit at the National Aquarium - home to a pair of two-toed sloths, Rapunzel and Slo-Mo, whose inborn lethargy makes the most dedicated TV addicts and chip eaters seem hyperactive.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Last Christmas, 5-year-old Hannah Yarter pleaded with Santa to send her the My Size Rapunzel Barbie. She needed it, wanted it, had to have it ... and got it. Nearly a year later, you won't find her brushing the 3-foot doll's long blond hair, sipping make-believe tea with her or snuggling up by her side. Instead, Barbie is buck naked, behind a recliner. "She slept with her for two nights," recalls her mother, Debbie Yarter. "Then she was afraid of her." So, Barbie slept on the couch before being tossed behind the furniture.
