Many fans of Stephen Sondheim, legendary Broadway composer and lyricist, will tell you Into The Woods is their favorite stage musical by the master.

So it will come as great news that the current limited-run revival of the show currently on Broadway has been extended to October 16.

Via Playbill:

Initially planned as a strictly limited 8-week engagement, the Encores! production of Into the Woods has extended its Broadway run and will now play the St. James Theatre through October 16, with tickets now on sale for the extension.

Following a two-week run at New York City Center in May, the revival—under the direction of Encores! Artistic Director Lear deBessonet—transferred to Broadway’s St. James Theatre, where it opened July 10, after beginning previews June 28. Read reviews for the production here.

With a book by James Lapine and a score by Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods combines the fairy-tale stories of Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and more, ultimately going beyond “ever after” to explore what happens next.

The cast currently stars Sara Bareilles, Brian d’Arcy James, Patina Miller, Phillipa Soo, Gavin Creel, and Joshua Henry as the Baker’s Wife, Baker, Witch, Cinderella, Cinderella’s Prince, and Rapunzel’s Prince, respectively, with Bareilles and Creel reprising their performances from the May Encores! run.
