The star made a comeback less than a week after her final show, and while it is not clear if or when she will be back on stage, she is proving it is still her home away from home.

She stepped out in support of her fellow Broadway performers, taking to the audience rather than the stage to watch the popular Into the Woods show.

The Tony-winning musical's plot rads: "A childless baker and his wife endeavor to lift their family curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter Rapunzel (and her witchly "mother"), Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters."

Julianne shared a photo from the audience where she was holding up two playbills, and she wrote: "So excited to see this beautiful cast and production."

The actress had her final – and emotional – Broadway performance on Sunday, 14 August, and took to Instagram then to open up about her time on stage in a heartfelt message of appreciation.


Julianne couldn't stay away 

She had been keen on sharing every little detail about her unforgettable Broadway experience, and she took fans along countless times with all of the cast's backstage shenanigans and their pre-show ritual, in which she blasted a feel-good song and danced through the hallways as they all got ready to hit the stage.
