I took some time off post Tonys and seemed to miss the news that Roundabout was doing Into The Woods this Christmas.

Anyone see the stripped down version when it played NJ?

This was announced a few months ago, not after the Tonys. But there's a good video preview on YouTube if you look around for it.

This article just says "Winter 2015" Does that mean January 2015 or December 2015? I can't imagine that a major production would be allowed so close to the opening of the movie.

I saw it last year when it was at the McCarter and loved it. I'm very excited to see it again at the Pels, it was nice to see a different interpretation of very familiar material.

Off-Broadway is not the consideration. Usually producers will restrict productions in large cities such as New York, Chicago, LA, no matter what the venue.

While we understand the difference between a $15 movie ticket and a $150 theater ticket (more people will opt to see the show at $15 than at $150), producers don't want to take the chance that the market will be too saturated with the product. They don't want the competition.

Except they want to capitalize on the film. Win/win

I also saw the production last summer in Princeton, and thought it was easily the best version of this show I've ever seen, including the recording of the original cast. While a few things have been cut, it's a beautiful production in every way, and I'm so happy more people will have the chance to see it. I've seen two Fiasco productions now, and their work is always fantastic, so it's great seeing them get this exposure.
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

What's to saturate? It is a Roundabout off-Broadway space with a subscription sales base in the dead of winter.
I will see it, because I love the show, but nothing anywhere in the press or previews have shown my anything that I like other talented actors.
