Critical Reviews & Show Photos

Into the Woods is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by James Lapine.

The musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood” (spelled “ridinghood” in the script), “Jack and the Beanstalk”, “Rapunzel”, and “Cinderella”, as well as several others. The musical is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family (the original beginning of the Grimm Brothers’ “Rapunzel”), their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.

Last night's performance of Arthur Miller's powerful drama All My Sons by the cast of the EventideTheater Company in Dennis, MA was stunning. I have seen this piece a number of times and last night's was one of the best. The entire cast brought this tragic play to life in a memorable and often heart breaking way and earned a much deserved standing ovation. While each cast member gave a note worthy performance, special gold stars from this viewer, go to those portraying the key players, the parents, Joe and Kate and Chris the surviving son. The ending, as it usually does, brought many in the audience, including this member, to tears. Congatulations, Eventide Theater Company!
