Into the Woods
Into the woods, and who can tell what's waiting on the journey? An all-star production of the musical Into the Woods is performed live under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl.
As the Baker and his Wife travel through the forest trying to reverse a witch’s curse, they come across Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and other famous storybook characters all in search of their own wishes…but “happily ever after” turns into a tale of “be careful what you wish for” when granted wishes have unexpected effects.
The all-star cast includes Skylar Astin as “The Baker”, Sierra Boggess as “Cinderella” , Chris Carmack as “Rapunzel’s Prince”, Sutton Foster as “The Baker’s Wife”, Cheyenne Jackson as Cinderella’s Prince / the Wolf”, Hailey Kilgore as “Rapunzel”, Gaten Matarazzo as “Jack”, Patina Miller as “The Witch”, Shanice Williams as “Little Red Riding Hood”, Tamyra Gray as “Granny / Cinderella’s Mother”, Edward Hibbert as “The Narrator” and the voice of Whoopi Goldberg as “The Giant”.
There are numerous options for getting to the Bowl:
Parking at the Bowl is limited and can be pricey: ($18 - $50). Parking is stacked, meaning you have to wait until the cars blocking your way leave before you can exit.
Park and Ride: You park your car in one of 14 lots, (chances are there's one near you), then ride a shuttle to the Bowl. $7 roundtrip when purchased in advance, $12 when purchased at the lot, (bring exact change). If you don't have advance tickets, you'll want to arrive at least 20 minutes early.
Bowl Shuttle: If you prefer, you can drive yourself to a lot this close to the Bowl, then take a shuttle from there. Two lots are on Ventura, another is at the LA Zoo. Parking is free; shuttle is $6 roundtrip. You can also park at Hollywood & Highland, (their parking rates apply) and either take the $5 shuttle or even walk. (It's a little bit of a trek!)
Or you could leave the car home and take the Metro.
