· Production on “Into the Woods” began in September, 2013 at Shepperton Studios and on
locations throughout England.
· Stephen Sondheim has received eight Tony® Awards, more than any other composer in
history. He has won seven times: Best Music and Best Lyrics for “Company” (1971); and Best
Score for “Follies” (1972), “A Little Night Music” (1973), “Sweeney Todd” (1979), “Into the
Woods” (1988) and “Passion” (1994). His eighth honor was a 2008 Special Tony Award for
Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre.
· The foundation of the Woods set, built on Stage H at Shepperton Studios, was made up of
2,000 tons of soil, over 600 ferns, acres and acres of ivy and countless pallets of moss and turf.
· 95 percent of the trees used on the Woods set were real trees, which included 30-foot pine
trees and hundreds of 25-foot oak tree branches, the leaves of which had to be removed and replaced with artificial ones (so they would last longer). The remaining five percent were full-sized whimsical trees constructed from plaster.
· There were four cows cast to play Milky-White. Their names were Tug, Diamond, Two Fold
· Rapunzel’s hair in the film is 20 feet long. The braid is made from real hair and weighs
almost six pounds.
· The music for the film was pre-recorded over a two-week period at Angel Studios in London
with a 56-piece orchestra, composed of some of the best musicians from the London
Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic.
