Into the Woods to Close on December 29
The Broadway revival of the Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine fairytale musical Into the Woods will end its run at the Broadhurst Theatre on Sunday, December 29, after having played 18 previews and 279 regular performances.
Starring Vanessa Williams as the Witch and John McMartin as the Narrator, the production opened at the Broadhurst on April 30 following an earlier run at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. The cast also includes Erin Dilly (who recently replaced Laura Benanti in the role of Cinderella), Stephen DeRosa, Kerry O'Malley, Gregg Edelman, and Christopher Sieber. Williams is scheduled to exit the production on December 22; it seems that one of her two understudies, Linda Mugleston or Tracy Nicole Chapman, will play the Witch for the show's final week.
