Do you know what you wish? Is it by chance an off-Broadway revival of Into the Woods? If so, here’s your chance—you go and you find it and you get it! Tickets are now available for the Roundabout production of the Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine classic. Performances begin on December 14 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. The sparse and inventive twist on the tuner will run through March 22.
Directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, the production features only ten actors and one piano. The stripped-down take, presented by Fiasco Theater, originally played New Jersey’s McCarter Theatre Center last year and is now running at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. The beloved reimagining of fairy tales centers on a childless Baker and his wife, who embark on a quest to find the four items required to break a witch’s spell: the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold.
Casting for the off-Broadway production will be announced at a later date.
Love Into the Woods and still not mollified? In addition to the Roundabout revival, the starry, “first-rate” screen adaptation of the musical is set to premiere on Christmas Day.
