Stephen Sondheim is smiling in heaven.
“Company,” as I told you yesterday, is booming right now with Patti Lupone, Katrina Lenk and co.
Now the Encores presentation of “Into the Woods” is moving to Broadway for six weeks beginning June 28th. It just wrapped at City Center.
The whole all -star cast is making the transition, too. That’s Sara Bareilles as the Baker’s Wife, Brian D’Arcy James as the Baker, Tony Award® winner Patina Miller as the Witch, Phillipa Soo as Cinderella, Tony Award winner Gavin Creel as the Wolf/Cinderella’s Prince, Joshua Henry as Rapunzel’s Prince, Ta’Nika Gibson as Lucinda, Annie Golden as Cinderella’s Mother/Grandmother/Giant’s Wife, Albert Guerzon as Cinderella’s Father, Brooke Ishibashi as Florinda, Kennedy Kanagawa as Milky White, David Patrick Kelly as the Narrator/Mysterious Man, Julia Lester as Little Red Riding Hood, Cole Thompson as Jack, David Turner as the Steward, Jason Forbach, Mary Kate Moore, and Cameron Johnson. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
This is like a Murderers Row of Broadway talent! PS DId I mention David Rockwell is the designer?
Tickets went on sale this morning at 10am, and they will be all sold out very fast.
