Bernadette Peters and the original Broadway cast of Into the Woods.

The Brooklyn Academy of Music is set to present a reunion of the original Broadway cast of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods. The event will take place at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House on Jun 21 at 2pm & 7pm.

The Into the Woods reunion, which is conceived and directed by Eileen Roberts, will include Sondheim and Lapine as well as cast members Bernadette Peters, Joanna Gleason, Chip Zien, Robert Westenberg, Kim Crosby, Danielle Ferland, and Ben Wright. Tedd Firth will serve as music director, with Broadway veteran and journalist Mo Rocca moderating. The evening will feature discussion as well as song performances and will take the audience deep into the creation of this beloved show.

Into the Woods is based on a few well-known Grimm Brothers fairy tales. The musical's original Broadway production won three Tony Awards. Subsequent versions include a 2002 Broadway revival (which won another Tony for best revival), a junior version for school performances, and a major Disney motion picture.
