Fans of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Into the Woods are well-aware that the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn and the slipper as pure as gold are precious objects. So too is a ticket to the starry Broadway revival, which officially opened at the St. James Theatre on July 10 following a red-hot run at New York City Center this past spring. The Lear deBessonet-directed production, which will leave theater lovers with a cast recording this September, is set to close on August 21. The revival grossed $1,829,941 last week with audiences at 99.46 percent capacity.
