Ten-Actor Into the Woods Added to McCarter Theatre Center's Upcoming Season
By Andrew Gans
McCarter Theatre Center has announced the final two productions of its 2012-13 season: Elevator Repair Service’s production of The Select (The Sun Also Rises) and Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Into the Woods, the latter produced in association with Fiasco Theater.
The Select (The Sun Also Rises), a staging of Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises," will be directed by John Collins. The production, which will run Oct. 26-Nov. 4, is described as such: "With cutting wit, doomed romance, and a live bullfight that has to be seen to be believed, this is an exquisite, wine-soaked homage to one of the finest novels ever written."
The award-winning Sondheim-Lapine musical Into the Woods will play the New Jersey venue May 3-June 2, 2013. Reimagined by Fiasco Theater, the production will feature direction by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld. Ten actors and a single piano will bring the fairy-tale themed musical to life.
As previously reported, the upcoming season will open Sept. 7 with Christopher Durang’s world-premiere comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. The McCarter season will also include Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance, which will run Jan. 18-Feb. 17, 2013. The production will be directed by McCarter artistic director Emily Mann. And, director Rebecca Taichman will helm Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, which is scheduled for an April 2-21, 2013, engagement.
