Nathan Bottorff: Into The Woods! prestonpage: Into the Woods
The American Playhouse 1991 live taping of the original production of Into the Woods was captured late in the Broadway run of the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine. Many cast members who had already departed the production returned to preserve their roles for the live taping at the Martin Beck Theatre (now the Al Hirschfeld). The original cast features Bernadette Peters, Chip Zien, Joanna Gleason, Kim Crosby and Robert Westenberg.
