"Into the Woods" Cast Members find real-life happily ever after at Near West Theatre!
When Joe Kenderes first answered a Near West Theatre casting call for a production of South Pacific in the Summer of 1996, the then-high school sophomore never imagined that he would meet his future wife. Now Joe, 30 from Brunswick and wife Jill Kenderes, 27 from Avon who began performing at Near West in a Summer Teen production in 2004, are both starring in the upcoming Near West Theatre production of Into the Woods, the fairy tale-themed Stephen Sondheim musical. Now, as the Kenderes' prepare to welcome their first child in November, it would seem this performing couple is living a real-life fairy tale, inspired by their experiences throughout the years at Near West Theatre.
