Our production of INTO THE WOODS at the Hollywood Bowl was a 2019 top ten choice by LA Times critic Charles McNulty. The picture that highlighted the choice captured me mid-stride onstage, pursuing mny son, Jack, played by Gaten Matarazzo.
LA Times: ‘Into the Woods’ and stars align in magical night at the Hollywood Bowl "I almost feel guilty for being one of the lucky ones to have caught what deserves to become a legendary Los Angeles memory. Sondheim’s lyrics can always be counted on for tickling cleverness, but performers sometimes gild the lily with silly mugging. Not here. Beanstalk-climbing Jack (Gaten Matarazzo), a poor boy no brighter than his beloved cow, Milky-White, and his clucking Mother (Rebecca Spencer) renewed their domestic antics with genuine feeling." - Charles McNulty
Broadway World: Broadway Vets Shine in Delightful, Star-Studded ‘Into the Woods’ at the Hollywood Bowl "this production's principal cast is the strongest, most theater-trained ensemble ever assembled for a Hollywood Bowl musical---creating a perfect swirling storm of incredible acting and even better singing voices." - Micheal Quintos
Hollywood Reporter: "A powerhouse cast that takes the annual Hollywood Bowl production to a new level" - Jordan Riefe
Rehearsals underway for Into The Woods
We've begun rehearsals for Into The Woods, and I'm happily reunited with my cast mates from the original company of PHANTOM: THE LAS VEGAS SPECTACULAR. Here with Anthony Crivello and Sierra Boggess.
Rebecca's YouTube Channel was updated wuth live camera video from her Christmas 2017 solo concert, featuring Philip Fortenberry, pianist, at the Sorting Room at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Beverly Hills.
Rebecca was featured in the cast of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN at Musical Theatre West in Long Beach, as Carol Strong, her fourth production with the company. Steven Stanley's review of the show noted: "the fabulous Rebecca Spencer makes for a still lusty Southern belle of a certain age as Brenda’s mom Carol."
Rebecca appeared at The Smith Center as a featured guest artist for the LV Composer’s Showcase, followed by an appearance on the Dennis Bono Live Radio Show at the South Point Hotel and Casino. Rebecca also performed a solo concert, celebrating her Christmas recording, as part of the first season of The Sorting Room at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.
