Here’s a reason to be happy ever after on a Tuesday. The critically acclaimed and much-beloved Broadway production of “Into the Woods” is coming to Boston — with a cast full of Broadway stars. The show opens tonight at Emerson Colonial Theatre and runs for just two weeks, tonight through Sunday, April 2.

If you’re already a fan of the musical, we know you’re excited (and possibly singing “Giants in the Sky” as we speak). If you’ve never seen it, you’re in for a treat. This modern classic intertwines the plots of several popular fairy tales (think: Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood), and explores what happens after happily ever after.

Emerson Colonial Theatre’s production of “Into the Woods” features Broadway actors Montego Glover as The Witch (who was nominated for a Tony Award for her lead role in “Memphis”), Stephanie J. Block as The Baker’s Wife (who won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical), Sebastian Arcelus as The Baker (who you might recognize from “House of Cards” or “Madam Secretary”), and Gavin Creel as Cinderella’s Prince/Wolf (who won a Tony in 2017).

All four actors are reprising their Broadway roles in a production called “radiant” (Variety), “enchanting” (The Wall Street Journal), and “a priceless revival with a perfect cast” (The Washington Post). Directed by Lear deBessonet, this theatrical event honors Sondheim’s Broadway masterpiece and his legendary memory.

Tickets ($39+) are selling fast, and missing out would be no fairy tale. Snag yours.*
