‘Into the Woods’ Cast With Democratic Candidates Has Us Excited AND Scared

PhillipBrandon/Reddit

The 2020 election is over a year away, but it's already heating up.

As the Democratic field of candidates to take on Trump continues to grow, we officially have enough to cast one of Stephen Sondheim's most ensemble-heavy works: Into the Woods!


While we've already submitted our dream cast for an Into the Woods production, it turns out that casting the Broadway and motion picture hit with 2020 Democratic presidential candidates promises to be just as entertaining, as one Reddit user proved.

We totally see how this could work. Elizabeth Warren as the Baker's Wife (an under-appreciated, competent woman who gets stuff done), Bernie Sanders as an older man that some dismiss as crazy, Beto O'Rourke who "was raised to be charming, not sincere," and Marianne Williamson as a character people forget is even in the show!

The choices got a standing ovation.
