The cast of Broadway's Into the Woods dropped by Today October 6 to perform not one, but two musical numbers, with the company performing the title number and Gavin Creel and Andy Karl, soon to be succeeding Joshua Henry as Rapunzel's Prince, offering their "Agony." Watch the performances below.
Playing the St. James Theatre, the revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods recently welcomed new cast members. The company is now led by real-life married couple Stephanie J. Block and Sebastian Arcelus as the Baker's Wife and the Baker, respectively, alongside fellow newcomers Montego Glover as The Witch (sharing the role with original star Patina Miller), Krysta Rodriguez as Cinderella, Katy Geraghty as Little Red Ridinghood, Jim Stanek as the Steward, and Ann Harada as Jack's Mom.
