Into the Woods

A wonderfully fanciful journey into the land of fairy tales. Meet Little Red Riding Hood, the Witch (wonderfully done by Bernadette Peters), Rapunzel, Jack (who climbed the bean stalk) Prince charming, Cinderella and more as they join together to make a wish come true and save their land from the giant.
My favorite line is:
"You're not good, you're not bad, you're just nice."
There is such a difference between being good and nice. Bernadette Peters is one of my favorite Broadway actresses and you feel her emotion as she pleads with her daughter to not leave her. They cast finds out the hard way that while wishes are good in thought, you do not always get what you expect and sometimes the price tag is higher than you want to pay.
Recommended for: Musical fans, comedy fans, people who are willing to enter into the world of fairy tales for a brief visit.
