Sutton Foster, Skylar Astin, Sierra Boggess, and More Join INTO THE WOODS at the Hollywood Bowl
Additional casting has been announced for the Hollywood Bowl's upcoming production of Into the Woods
Joining the cast are Skylar Astin, who most recently played Greg on the hit TV series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, as the Baker; Olivier-nominated Sierra Boggess, who made her Broadway debut as Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid, as Cinderella; Chris Carmack, who can currently be seen on Grey's Anatomy, as Rapunzel's Prince; Anthony Crivello, who won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor for Kiss of the Spider Woman as the Mysterious Man; Two-time Tony Award-winning and Grammy-nominated Sutton Foster as the Baker's wife; Grammy-nominated actor, singer, and songwriter Cheyenne Jackson as Cinderella's Prince and the Wolf; and Hailey Kilgore, best known for her recent Tony-nominated performance in the Broadway revival of Once on This Island, as Rapunzel.
The production also stars the previously announced Gaten Matarazzo as Jack, Patina Miller as the Witch, Shanice Williams as Little Red Riding Hood, and the voice of Whoopi Goldberg as the Giant. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
The darkly humorous and hauntingly beautiful masterpiece, with book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, will be the 20th annual fully staged summer Broadway musical produced by the LA Phil at the Hollywood Bowl.
Into the Woods will be directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Robert Longbottom and conducted by Kevin Stites, who will also serve as musical director.
The Hollywood Bowl will be transformed into an enchanted world of magic beans, towering giants, and handsome princes. As the Baker and his Wife travel through the forest trying to reverse a witch's curse, they come across Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and other iconic storybook characters, all in search of their own wishes...but "happily ever after" turns into a tale of "be careful what you wish for," when granted wishes have unexpected effects. This is Sondheim at his finest, with such memorable songs as "Children Will Listen" and "No One Is Alone."
Into the Woods will have three performances at the Hollywood Bowl this summer - Friday, July 26, at 8PM; Saturday, July 27, at 8PM; and Sunday, July 28, at 7:30PM. Subscriptions and single tickets for performances during the Hollywood Bowl 2019 summer season are available at hollywoodbowl.com, 323 850 2000, or in person at the Hollywood Bowl Box Office.
