Tell Me More

Spend some moments in the woods! An all-star cast leads the latest revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairytale musical. Get Into the Woods tickets on TodayTix.

The Into the Woods musical is a fairytale come to life, and not just because seeing Grammy winner Sara Bareilles, Tony winners Patina Miller and Gavin Creel, Tony nominees Brian d'Arcy James and Joshua Henry, and more on stage together is a dream come true. The show takes classic Grimm brothers stories and mashes them up with new characters in one epic adventure. Central to the story are the Baker and the Baker's Wife, who are prevented from having a child by a Witch's curse. The Witch sends them into the woods to get ingredients for a potion that will lift the spell.

Off they go, and along the way, they meet people including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (of Jack and the Beanstalk), and Little Red Ridinghood, all motivated by wishes and quests of their own. With each other's help, they find happily ever after — at the end of Act 1. But what happens afterward? As the show continues from there, they discover that happily ever after isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Since its premiere, Into the Woods has become revered for its gorgeous score and touching messages for all ages about family, happiness, loss, and above all, growing up and learning that reality doesn't always mimic your childhood fairytales.

Audiences first went into the woods on Broadway in 1987, and the premiere production ran at the Martin Beck Theatre for just under two years. The show was nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and won three: Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Actress in a Musical for Joanna Gleason as the Baker's Wife. (She played opposite fellow Broadway favorites Chip Zien as the Baker and Bernadette Peters as the Witch.)

Following a one-night-only concert in 1997, Into the Woods got its first full Broadway revival in 2002, which got two Tonys out of 10 nominations, including Best Revival of a Musical. The musical has a history of success, and the current revival is proving no different. It originated off Broadway as part of New York City Center's Encores! series for seldom revived musicals, and the two-week run sold out and received rave reviews. Much of that cast returned for the Broadway engagement, which was just as lauded. A review on New York Theatre Guide called Into the Woods "bewitchingly beautiful and impeccably performed" and "Broadway’s giant summer blockbuster."

What to Watch For

  • Broadway orchestras often perform in a pit or sometimes off to the side of the stage, but in Into the Woods, the actors perform at the front of the stage, and the entire orchestra is visible behind them.
  • To promote the original Broadway production of Into the Woods, a gigantic boot was built to hang off the Martin Beck Theatre, a reference to the Giant's Wife featured in the musical. The boot isn't there for this revival, but on stage, the giant (who is just a voiceover role) is represented by two heeled boots that are taller than the actors!
  • Puppeteers move those boots, and a puppeteer also operates Milky White, Jack's cow, in Into the Woods. Kennedy Kanagawa, the puppeteer, has become a fan-favorite performer in this revival!
  • Lots of celebrities have flocked to the woods in the show's history. Worldwide, Jessie Mueller and and Laura Benanti have played Cinderella; Phylicia Rashad, Vanessa Williams, and Hannah Waddingham have played the Witch; Imelda Staunton, Amy Adams, and Sutton Foster have played the Baker's Wife; and Neil Patrick Harris and Skylar Astin have played the Baker, to name a few. Plus, celebrities who have cameoed as the voice of the Giant's Wife include Glenn Close, Whoopi Goldberg, Judi Dench, and even former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton!
  • This Into the Woods revival is the first Broadway production of the show not directed by James Lapine, who also wrote the musical's book. Lear deBessonet, the artistic director of Encores! at New York City Center, helms this production.
