    Sondheim Reprise Puts Music Ahead of the Journey

    Ben Brantley

    May 1, 2002: A bright and beckoning path cuts through the fairy-tale thicket of whimsy and woe that is ''Into the Woods,'' the musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine that opened last night in a new revival at the Broadhurst Theater. This path is no trail of bread crumbs. It is Mr. Sondheim's score, which now shows every sign of enduring into happily-ever-after posterity, that keeps leading you onward in a show that does not inspire confidence on all levels. Trust in Mr. Sondheim, though. Follow the music. It will take you somewhere wonderful.
