Roundabout Theatre Company will present Fiasco Theater's acclaimed production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Tony Award-winning musical Into the Woods — seen at New Jersey's McCarter Theatre Center in May 2013 —  beginning Dec. 18 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.

Opening night is set for Jan. 22, 2015, for a limited engagement through March 22, 2015.

Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, who directed the show in 2013 and again at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, CA, will repeat their work Off-Broadway.

Here's how the production is billed: "With only 10 actors, 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 full cast and design team will be announced at a later date.

The original ensemble at McCarter included Jessie Austrian (The Importance of Being Earnest), Noah Brody, Paul L. Coffey, Andy Grotelueschen, Liz Hayes, Claire Karpen, Jennifer Mudge, Patrick Mulryan, Ben Steinfeld (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and Emily Young (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson). The design team included Tony Award-winning set designer Derek McLane, costume designer Whitney Locher, lighting designer Tim Cryan, sound designer Darron L West, vocal coach and Alexander Technique by Kathryn Armour. The production stage manager was Cheryl Mintz with assistant stage manager Marcy Victoria Reed.

Roundabout has a long relationship with Sondheim, having produced five Tony Award-nominated Sondheim revivals, including Company (1995), Follies (2001), the Tony Award-winning Assassins (2004), Pacific Overtures (2004) and Sunday in the Park with George (2008).

The Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre is located at 111 West 46th Street. For more information, visit RoundaboutTheatre.org.
