The St. James Theatre opened in 1927 as Erlanger's Theatre, named for booking agent Abraham Erlanger. It was renamed the St. James in 1932, after the London theatre of the same name. In 2001, the St. James production of The Producers set box office records for single-day sales, introduced ‘premium’ seating, and won an unprecedented 12 Tonys.
Here’s a reason to be happy ever after... Direct from its sold-out New York City Center Encores! run, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award®-winning triumph Into the Woods comes to Broadway’s St. James Theatre for 8 weeks only. So don’t delay or be misled—this critically acclaimed new production is here just for a moment!
Little Red has strayed far from the path, Jack’s found a second beanstalk, Prince Charming’s eyes are wandering, and there’s a Witch living next door. Stephen Sondheim’s most popular musical turns the world of fairy tales topsy-turvy, reminding us that granted wishes often bring complications. Filled with exquisite music and brilliant lyrics, this innovative new production is sure to enchant as it ventures beyond “happily ever after.”
