INTO THE WOODS Has Its Witch...Donna Murphy

Donna Murphy (The People In the Picture) has been confirmed to play the role of the Witch in the Public Theatre's upcoming production of INTO THE WOODS at the Delacorte Theatre this summer. This is really exciting news!!

Murphy joins Amy Adams (The Baker's Wife), Jessie Mueller (Cinderella), Jack Broderick (Narrator), Gideon Glick (Jack), Cooper Grodin (Rapunzel’s Prince), Ivan Hernandez (Cinderella’s Prince/Wolf), Tina Johnson (Granny), Josh Lamon (Steward), Laura Shoop (Cinderella’s Mother), and Tess Soltau (Rapunzel).

Now we are just waiting for a Baker. As good news as this is, with Adams set to be the Baker's Wife, a lesser role than the Witch, I'm sort of surprised they didn't cast a bigger name. That being said, I'm sure Donna Murphy will be great though, especially after watching this video of her at the Sondheim birthday celebration!
