McCarter Theatre artistic director Emily Mann said in a statement, “When we were searching for the perfect project to cap the season, my associate producer Adam Immerwahr, shared with me that Fiasco Theater was putting together a new take on Into the Woods – and I was immediately intrigued…With a tiny cast and some wild doubling, a set of brilliant actor-musicians and great creativity, this will be an Into the Woods that you can’t see anywhere else.”
The production, co-directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, features choreography by Lisa Shriver and musical direction/piano accompaniment by Matt Castle. The design team includes 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 is Cheryl Mintz with assistant stage manager Marcy Victoria Reed.
