How to buy tickets, best prices

We’re almost out of the woods.

On Jan. 8, Stephen Sondheim’s “Into The Woods” at New York’s St. James Theatre will close after its short run.

The well-reviewed musical adult fairytale began previews in June and was only supposed to run eight weeks before being repeatedly extended due to popular demand.

However, with no more extensions on the horizon, that means just a few more chances to see Brian D’arcy James as The Baker, Stephanie J. Block as The Baker’s Wife, Joshua Henry as Rapunzel’s Prince before “Into The Woods” closes its curtains for good on Broadway.

While it might seem like seats to see “Into The Woods” live would cost an arm and a leg, some are available for as low as $63 before fees on Vivid Seats.

So, as Sondheim says, “Best to take the moment present, As a present for the moment,” and get your hands on “Into The Woods” 2022-23 tickets before it’s too late.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to make that happen.
