Krysta Rodriguez will reprise her performance as Cinderella in Into the Woods, joining the national tour for its final weeks in Los Angeles. The Spring Awakening star will perform July 13 and remain with the production through the end of the run, which concludes July 30. Rodriguez previously took on the role during the Tony-nominated production's Broadway run.
Rodriguez joins a company primarily made up of other alum of the production's Broadway run, including Montego Glover as The Witch, Stephanie J. Block and Sebastian Arcelus as the Baker's Wife and the Baker (respectively), Gavin Creel as The Wolf/Cinderella's Prince, Cole Thompson as Jack, Katy Geraghty as Little Red Ridinghood, Jason Forbach as Rapunzel’s Prince, David Patrick Kelly as The Narrator, Nancy Opel as Cinderella’s Stepmother, Felicia Curry as Cinderella’s Mother/Grandmother/Giant’s Wife, Aymee Garcia as Jack’s Mother, Ta'Nika Gibson as Lucinda, Brooke Ishibashi as Florinda, Kennedy Kanagawa as Milky White, Josh Breckenridge as Cinderella’s Father, Jim Stanek as the Steward, and Alysia Velez as Rapunzel.
With a book by James Lapine and a score by Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods combines the fairy-tale stories of Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and more, ultimately going beyond "ever after" to explore what happens next. This current production began as a two-week run at New York City Center Encores! in 2022, then transferred to Broadway for a July 10, 2022, opening. Many Broadway pros and Tony winners cycled through the cast in its six-month run, including Sara Bareilles, Brian d'Arcy James, Joshua Henry, Andy Karl, Ann Harada, Annie Golden, Phillipa Soo, Denée Benton, Patina Miller, and Joaquina Kalukango. The national tour officially launched at Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center in February following a preview engagement in Buffalo, New York.
