Chip Zien, who created the role of the Baker in the original Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods, is part of a live podcast taping of Giants in the Sky: How Sondheim and Lapine Went Into the Woods October 23 at 1 PM at The Green Room 42.
Zien, recently seen Off-Broadway in the new musical Harmony, chats with Ben Rimalower, who penned and starred in the solo shows Bad With Money and Patti Issues. Expect
a behind-the-scenes look at the Tony-nominated Sondheim-Lapine musical,
which is currently back on Broadway at the St. James Theatre.
With a book and direction by Lapine and a score by Sondheim, Into the Woods originally opened at Broadway's Martin Beck Theatre November 5, 1987, playing 765 performances before closing September 3, 1989. The original Broadway company boasted Bernadette Peters, Zien, Robert Westenberg, Joanna Gleason, Tom Aldredge, Barbara Bryne, Kim Crosby, Chuck Wagner, and Ben Wright. The musical won Tonys for Best Book, Best Score, and Best Actress in a Musical (Gleason). The Sondheim score features "Agony," "On the Steps of the Palace," "Children Will Listen," "Giants in the Sky," "No One Is Alone," and the title tune, among others.
