The run of Into the Woods was a landmark occasion for the University of Arizona School of Theatre, Film & Television, marking the first time students and patrons returned to the school’s venues for live theatre in almost 20 months.
Acting and Musical Theatre students Taylor Maresca (Cinderella) and Max Murray (Mysterious Man, Narrator), and faculty members Danny Gurwin (Director), Christie Kerr (Choreographer) and Jamie Reed (Musical Director, Conductor) spoke with Liv Leonard for The Daily Wildcat about the challenges they overcame to mount a production that has been met with standing ovations almost every night.
“Into the Woods has been the perfect opening act for UA Theatre to present to the public,” writes Leonard, “as the story collectively brings everyone together straight into the unknown. During this ongoing pandemic and in a world full of uncertainties and seemingly foggy woods all around, it’s refreshing to be reminded that truly, you are never alone.”
