Tony nominee Montego Glover, who shares the role of The Witch in the Broadway revival of Into the Woods with Tony winner Patina Miller, recently stopped by the Playbill Studio to share her five dressing room essentials.
“So, I'm moving into the St. James Theatre on 44th Street on the big Broadway, and I'm packing my bag to move into my dressing room," Glover said. "And, I realize I've got to have my five essential things. What are my five essential dressing room things you might ask?” Watch the video above to find out what they are.
Glover plays The Witch Tuesday through Thursday with Miller in the role Friday through Sunday.
The current revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods is now led by real-life married couple Stephanie J.

Also recently joining the cast were Krysta Rodriguez as Cinderella, Katy Geraghty as Little Red Ridinghood, and Jim Stanek as the Steward.
