Fascinating! I too thought the song was about the plague. Thanks for the insight

On a side note, there are the rare fairy tale adaptations that stay true to the source material. Although it’s a musical, Into the Woods retains the gross parts of the Cinderella story, and the Sigourney Weaver/Sam Neill Snow White keeps the disturbing story. In case you want to get away from the Disney versions… ;-)
