Come join a great gathering to celebrate Titus Burgess playing the role of the Witch in the Arsht Center’s stage production of Into The Woods! The Arsht was mentioned in media for the beautiful diversity in its cast of Into The Woods as hype continued around the movie’s lack thereof.

Come to meet this talented actor and enjoy complimentary cocktails and lite bites at a gorgeous location on South Beach.

INTO THE WOODS features an all-star cast comprised of stellar local talent and New York-based actors including Broadway’s Tituss Burgess (Jersey Boys, The Little Mermaid, Guys and Dolls and TV’s “30 Rock”) and Arielle Jacobs (In The Heights). INTO THE WOODS is the inaugural production by DreamCatcher Theatre, a new South Florida-based company led by Miami native brother-sister team Natalie and J.J. Caruncho. Meet them at this exclusive event to celebrate Theater Up Close.
