"Into the Woods" now playing at the Woodlawn Theatre

See also

Several of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales take center stage in the Woodlawn Theatre’s production of “Into the Woods” now playing until Sunday March 16, 2014. It is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine.

“Into the Woods” follows several fairy tale characters who each have a wish. The Baker and his wife wish to have a child, Cinderella wishes to attend the King’s Festival and Jack wishes his cow would give milk. When an ugly old witch reveals to them that the reason they are childless is because of a curse she put on his family they set out to break the curse. She requires four ingredients for a potion: the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn and the slipper as pure as gold. In the end everyone gets their wish but with devastating results.

Saturday’s performance of this modern twist of classic fairytales was well received by the nearly packed house. The first act is a retelling of familiar fairy tales with the usual happily ever after ending with Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Jack and the Beanstalk and others. The wolf’s performance in “Hello, Little Girl” is hilarious while “Agony” by Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince is outstanding. The second act is darker and ominous but the cast remains just as dedicated to their roles. Everyone involved in this production from the cast to the crew, costume designer and set designer should be commended on a job well done.
