Breakfast and a Show: Into The Woods + LFK Breakfast Favorites

Into The WoodsIn May,1989, the full original Broadway cast (with the exception of Jean Kelly as Snow White) reunited for only three performances for a taping of the musical for the Season 10 premiere episode of PBS's American Playhouse. It first aired on March 15, 1991. The show was filmed professionally with seven cameras on the set of the Martin Beck Theater in front of an audience. A few elements changed from its original nightly counterpart for the recording in order to better fit the screen rather than the stage such as the lighting, and minor costume differences,. There were also some pick up shots not filmed in front of an audience. This video has since been released on Tape and DVD and, on occasion, remastered and re-released. This video is considered to be the original IntoThe Woods. _______________________________________________________________________________
