About This Show

A Baker and his wife, Cinderella, Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, and even the Witch all wish for something, but they must learn the responsibility that comes with getting what you want in the Tony Award-winning musical Into the Woods.

This special two-week run of Into the Woods, directed by Encores! Artistic Director Lear deBessonet, will honor the memory of legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. The star-studded cast includes Sara Bareilles as the Baker’s Wife, Christian Borle as the Baker, Jordan Donica as Rapunzel’s Prince, Heather Headley as the Witch, Julia Lester as Little Red Riding Hood, Ashley Park as Cinderella, Shereen Pimentel as Rapunzel, and Cole Thompson as Jack.

The production ushers in a new tradition at Encores! which celebrates iconic American musicals. This new tradition brings together Broadway’s brightest stars with a multi-generational group, including New York City public school students, to highlight the ways theater connects us across generations. Into the Woods features choreography by film and television’s Jamal Sims and Encores! Music Director Rob Berman leading the Encores! Orchestra.
