He has a few more moments into the woods! Sebastian Arcelus will return to Into the Woods on Broadway for the final week of its run, from January 3-8. The critically acclaimed revival currently plays the St. James Theatre.

Arcelus will play the Baker opposite Stephanie J. Block, his real-life spouse, as the Baker's Wife.
