It is my pleasure to announce that the upcoming production of Into The Woods at the Laura Pels Theatre will feature the original McCarter Theatre Center/Fiasco Theater cast. These ten extraordinary actors are Jessie Austrian (Baker’s Wife), Noah Brody (Lucinda/Wolf/Cinderella’s Prince), Paul L. Coffey (Mysterious Man), Andy Grotelueschen (Milky White/Florinda/Rapunzel’s Prince), Liz Hayes (Cinderella’s Stepmother/Jack’s Mother), Claire Karpen (Cinderella/Granny), Jennifer Mudge (Witch), Patrick Mulryan (Jack/Steward), Ben Steinfeld (Baker), and Emily Young (Little Red Ridinghood/Rapunzel). As you know, Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld (co-Artistic Directors, along with Jessie Austrian, of Fiasco Theater) are also directing this thrillingly imaginative iteration of the musical.
We have several Roundabout alums in this exceptional cast: Andy Grotelueschen and Ben Steinfeld both appeared in Roundabout’s Cyrano de Bergerac, Jessie Austrian appeared in The Importance of Being Earnest, and Jennifer Mudge appeared in The Philanthropist. I am so happy to have them back and to welcome the rest of the company to Roundabout for the first time. As a whole, this group of actors has worked at numerous New York and regional theaters, including Broadway venues, Arena Stage, Theatre for a New Audience, Williamstown Theatre Festival, New World Stages, Actors Theatre of Louisville, the Guthrie Theater, Atlantic Theater Company, and of course Trinity Rep (every cast member completed either graduate or undergraduate training at Brown or Brown/Trinity).
The cohesive magic of this group of actors is even more impressive than their individual accomplishments, and I am so excited to see their work on the stage of the Laura Pels Theatre this winter.
Into the Woods will begin performances at Roundabout Theatre Company on December 18 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold & Miriam Steinberg Centre for Theatre. For more information and tickets, please visit our website.
