No metatheatrical devices were needed in this steampunk-infused “Into the Woods” from Lyric Stage in Boston, with the purple and blue color palette giving the woods the necessary menace. And to go fully nontraditional, this production featured an Asian actress (Lisa Yuen) playing the Baker’s Wife, an African-American Little Red Riding Hood (Maritza Bostic) and an African-American Wolf/Prince (Maurice Emmanuel Parent).
