Into The Woods Danielle Ferland

Danielle Ferland, who played the sassy and spirited crimson-caped girl 25 years ago in the original Broadway production of “Into the Woods,” is playing the role of The Baker’s Wife in a revival of the musical at the Westport Country Playhouse. It is a co-production with Baltimore’s Centerstage where it was presented earlier this year. “I definitely feel as though I’ve come full circle,” says the Derby-born, Stratford-raised Ferland. “But there is also this sense of déjà vu, too. It’s amazing what you remember all these years. It’s so weird.”

The actress was a young teenager at Bunnell High School when she began learning the Red in workshops in the mid-’80s. The show, with music by Stephen Sondheim and book and direction by James Lapine, opened on Broadway in 1987 and later was filmed on DVD. There was also a Broadway revival in 2002.

There will be another production of the show this summer at the Delacorte Theater in New York’s Central Park, based on a celebrated outdoor production in London. The Central Park show, which plays July 23 to Aug. 25, stars Amy Adams as The Baker’s Wife and Tony Award-winner Donna Murphy as The Witch.

Ferland, 41, made her Broadway debut in another Sondheim/Lapine show when she was 13 — as the little girl Louise in “Sunday in the Park with George” in 1984. She had been acting for several years, making the rounds in commercials and performing in local productions, when she auditioned for the new musical. Lapine had Ferland sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” and then had her sing it in several different ways to see how well she took direction. The director was impressed.

But even when she was offered the “Sunday” role, she hadn’t grasped the significance of the opportunity. She had been cast in a non-Equity production of “Gypsy” at Candlewood Playhouse in New Fairfield as Baby June, and Ferland wanted to do that part.

Her agent talked with the young girl and her mother to make them understand what is in a new musical by America’s leading Broadway composer meant. “Eventually we worked it out where I could do both shows,” she says. It also helped that “Sunday” starred Mandy Patinkin, whom Ferland’s mother “had a crush on since ‘Evita.’ ” “Even though I was the only kid in the cast, [Lapine] made me feel important and valuable.”

It was a relationship that continued when the writer-director cast her as the street-smart-but-still-vulnerable Little Red Riding Hood for “Into the Woods,” a show that took characters from several classic fairy tales, created a few new ones, and put them all into a mysterious forest in where they discover the reality of what actually happens after “happily ever after.”

The role of Red was reportedly created with her in mind. “I definitely think there is a little bit of Red in me. I do have that dry sense of humor.” The role also allowed Ferland to shine with significant stage time playing a character that developed over the story. And it gave her a solo song, “I Know Things Now.”

“When you’re younger you don’t know so much about the business aspect of it all,” she says during a break in rehearsals. “You maintain your innocence and you just do it. You don’t over-think it. But when you’re older, you do and you might over-think things. I love that feeling of acting on pure instinct. I miss that. That’s what being a kid is all about.”

Danielle Woods Career

She earned her MS in Broadcast & Digital Journalism at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. She landed into her first television job in January at WJET/WFXP in Erie, PA. It’s a little far from home, six hours with my driving, but it’s a great experience. She grew up watching the market and journalists of NY inspired me to get into this profession.
