STAGE TUBE: Watch Highlights from Mercury Theatre's INTO THE WOODS!


Mercury Theater Chicago, 3745 N Southport Ave., presents The Hypocrites' production INTO THE WOODS, directed by Geoff Button* with Musical Direction by Matt Deitchman, opening tonight, February 11 at 7:30 p.m. and running through Sunday, March 30. Check out highlights from the production below!

With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and the book by James Lapine, The Hypocrites bring their heightened and playful sense of theatricality to the beloved musical INTO THE WOODS. INTO THE WOODS tells the epic fairytale of several Brothers Grimm characters including the Baker and his Wife who learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse. As they set off on a journey to break the curse, the couple encounters Jack of Beanstalk fame, Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, Cinderella and her suitors, and the Witch herself. While everyone's wish is granted, the consequences of their actions return to haunt them.

INTO THE WOODS stars Sarah Bockel (Cinderella/Rapunzel), Michael Brown (Rapunzel's Prince/Cinderella's Father), Hannah Dawe (Red/Stepsister), Joel Ewing (Baker), Kate Harris (Jack's Mother/Cinderella's Stepmother), Allison Hendrix (Baker's Wife), Hillary Marren (Witch/Granny), Aubrey McGrath (Jack/Steward), Blake Montgomery (Narrator/Mysterious Man) and Will Skrip (Cinderella's Prince/Wolf).

The musical is brought to vivid life on stage with revolutionary staging, a set designed by William Boles, lighting design Heather Gilbert, costume design by Sally Dolembo, sound design by Joshua Horvath and choreographed by Katie Spelman. For more information, please visit
