The Public Theater has announced that the first public preview of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Into the Woods, which was scheduled for July 23 at the Delacorte Theater, has been postponed due to “weather delays.”
Heavy rains during the July 18 week caused delays in the production schedule, according to a production spokesperson. The cancellation of the public performance is not due to the July 23 weather forecast for the New York City area. The production team will use the July 23 evening as the final invited dress rehearsal.
The first preview of the musical, which explores the shadows of well-known children’s fairytales, will now be held July 24 at 8 PM.
