Joanna Gleason performs "Moments in the Woods" in the original production of INTO THE WOODS. The Baker’s Wife is probably one of my top three favorite Sondheim female roles. If I could just play one role, ever, I’d have to choose between Cora Hoover Hooper or The Baker’s Wife. 

Joanna Gleason is simply ethereal as the Baker’s Wife, and was a standout for me when I first saw INTO THE WOODS on film. Her chemistry with Chip Zien is so heartwarming, and she’s just so earnest. She’s also a kick-ass actress with a beautiful, crystal clear voice. 

Also, she has the best glasses ever, bar none.
