The production, which continues through March 22, will feature the original McCarter Theatre Center/Fiasco Theater cast, including Jessie Austrian as Baker’s Wife, Noah Brody as Lucinda, Wolf & Cinderella’s Prince, Paul L. Coffey as Mysterious Man, Andy Grotelueschen as Milky White, Florinda & Rapunzel’s Prince, Liz Hayes as Cinderella’s Stepmother & Jack’s Mother, Claire Karpen as Cinderella & Granny, Jennifer Mudge as Witch, Patrick Mulryan as Jack & Steward, Ben Steinfeld as Baker and Emily Young as Little Red Ridinghood & Rapunzel.

Into the Woods has been reimagined by Fiasco and is directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld. This production premiered in May 2013 at the McCarter Theatre in association with Fiasco, and was subsequently produced at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, CA.

"With only 10 actors," according to the Roundabout, "one piano and boundless imagination, this witty and wildly theatrical re-invention is Into the Woods like you’ve never seen it before! This stripped-down, unplugged, thrillingly clever new version includes all the dazzling classic songs like 'Children Will Listen' and 'Giants in the Sky.' Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what happens when they really do come true."

The creative team includes Derek McLane (sets), Whitney Locher (costumes), Christopher Akerlind (lighting), Darron L West (sound), Lisa Shriver (choreographer) and Matt Castle (pianist/music director).

Show times will be Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30 PM with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 PM. Tickets are available by calling (212) 719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org, and in person at Roundabout’s Laura Pels Theatre Box office (111 West 46th Street). Single tickets are $99.
