Time Out says

The 2022 season of City Center’s invaluable Encores! concert series concludes with a two -week run of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's brilliantly disenchanted 1987 musical Into the Woods, in which fairy-tale characters get to their happily-ever-afters and then face giant aftershocks. Staged by Encores!'s new artistic director, Lear deBessonet, the production features major Broadway names: Heather Headley as the Witch, Neil Patrick Harris as the Baker, Sara Bareilles as the Baker’s Wife, Denée Benton as Cinderella and Gavin Creel as the Wolf/Prince, not to mention Ann Harada, Annie Golden, David Patrick Kelly, Lauren Mitchell and more. They are joined by a large multigenerational ensemble that includes NYC seniors and public school students. Lorin Latarro is the choreographer and music director Rob Berman leads the orchestra.
