News PHOTO CALL: DeRosa, Williams, McMartin Go Into the Woods


Photos by Aubrey Reuben

After hours, the Baker and the Witch get along together just fine. Stephen DeRosa and Vanessa Williams celebrated the April 30 opening of Into the Woods at the party thrown in the new Times Square Toys R Us. Their co-star John McMartin, pictured with Irish Repertory Theatre's artistic director Charlotte Moore, is featured in the new Broadway revival as the Narrator/Mysterious Man.

Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, directed in its revival by its original director and book writer James Lapine, twists popular fairy tales, infusing them with an adult sense of what happens after the "Happily Ever After." Jack's murder of the giant (of beanstalk fame) provokes the wrath of his giant wife. Cinderella's prince is a hopeless philanderer. The witch, played by recording star Williams, is not wicked but overprotective of her daughter. And a slightly psychotic Little Red Riding Hood proudly wears the grey skin of the wolf she cut up.
