INTO THE WOODS takes place in the fairytale kingdom of the Brothers Grimm where, once upon a time, a baker (J.J. Caruncho) and his wife (Arielle Jacobs*) were sent on a quest into the woods by a mysterious witch (Tituss Burgess*). Thrust into a world of magic and adventure, they find their story intertwined with a group of legendary characters including Cinderella (Annemarie Rosano), Little Red Riding Hood (Magan Dee Yantko), and a certain young man named Jack (Bruno Vida) who has some very magical beans. Sondheim’s brilliant lyrics and gorgeous music, paired with Lapine’s captivating book, make this Tony Award-winning Broadway musical about wishes, chasing your dreams, and the importance of the stories we tell our children both magical and deeply touching.
The company of INTO THE WOODS will also feature J.J Caruncho*, Annemarie Rosano*, Magan Dee Yantko, Bruno Vida, Laura Turnbull*, Laura Hodos*, Cristina Flores, Elaine Flores, Marina Pires, Justin John Moniz*, Matthew Janisse, Elizabeth Dimon*, Jeni Hacker*, Oscar Cheda*, Roland Rusinek*, Wayne LeGette*, Kelsey Flynn and Annette Navarro.
