Fiasco Theater's INTO THE WOODS Travels to The PAC This February

The Performing Arts Center, Purchase College (The PAC) will present the critically-acclaimed production of Fiasco Theater's INTO THE WOODS. This celebrated new production of the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine will perform at The PAC, 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, NY 10577 on Thursday, February 2 and Friday, February 8 at 8:00pm. Tickets are still available ($65-$85) here and at 914-251-6200.

This wildly inventive ensemble piece features versatile actor/musicians who will sing, act and play instruments, including Evan Harrington as Baker, Anthony Chatmon II as Lucinda/Wolf/Cinderella's Prince, Fred Rose as Mysterious Man, Darick Pead as Milky White/Florinda/Rapunzel's Prince, Bonne Kramer as Cinderella's Stepmother/Jack's Mother, Laurie Veldheer as Cinderella/Granny, Vanessa Reseland as Witch, Philippe Arroyo as Jack/Steward, Eleasha Gamble as Baker's Wife, and Lisa Helmi Johanson as Little Red Riding Hood/Rapunzel, with Joshua Archer, Javier Ignacio, Kate Moore, Evan Rees, ALanna Saunders and Sean Peter Forte.

Ben Steinfeld, co-director of this production and co-artistic director of Fiasco Theater, had this to say about the celebrated ensemble company: "The key element in every Fiasco show is the sense of ensemble that the audience sees on stage. What you're seeing is not a group of individuals, but an actual group-like seeing a band or a choir. We're really listening, breathing, and thinking together."

The acclaimed Fiasco Theater production of INTO THE WOODS is presented by the Dodgers (the Tony Award-winning producers of the original Into the Woods with Bernadette Peters, and of its revival with Vanessa Williams, Jersey Boys, Matilda), along with NETworks Presentations (the Lincoln Center Theater production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific, The Phantom of the Opera, War Horse). Unanimously revered and extended twice at Roundabout Theatre Company, INTO THE WOODS became New York's surprise hit of the 2015 season, followed by a celebrated engagement at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London. The award-winning musical classic has been mounted with boundless imagination: a witty and wild theatrical reinvention like you've never seen it before.

This production is directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, with Scenic Design by Derek McLane, Costume Design by Whitney Locher, Lighting Design by Christopher Akerlind, Sound Design by Darron L. West and Charles Coes, Orchestrations by Frank Galgano and Matt Castle, Music Supervision by Matt Castle and Choreography by Lisa Shriver. Casting is by STEWART/WHITLEY.

Including dazzling songs like "Children Will Listen" and "No One Is Alone," this thrillingly clever new version made Ben Brantley of The New York Times fall "head over heels." Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant in the sky at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what really happens after they come true.

The popular film adaptation of INTO THE WOODS by Walt Disney Pictures premiered in 2014 with Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, James Corden and Anna Kendrick, and was critically and commercially successful. Already in the top five of the most successful movie musical adaptations ever, it was nominated for 3 Academy Awards and 3 Golden Globes.
