Lauren Kennedy (Side Show, Sunset Boulevard) and cast mate Britney
Coleman give an early rehearsal sample of "Stay With Me" from Stephen
Sondheim and James Lapine's fairytale-inspired Into the Woods. After
seeing the original Broadway production as a teen, Kennedy had no interest
in playing the more age-appropriate Little Red Riding Hood. Rather, it was
Bernadette Peters' portrayal of the Witch that captured her imagination.
After some bargaining, Kennedy's childhood dream finally came true and she
was cast in her first-ever Sondheim production. Directed by Westport Country
