Reviews of Into the Woods

What happens after “happily ever after?” Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods answers that question, skillfully interweaving several classic fairy tales into one epic story that goes beyond the happy endings to show what happens when a fairy-tale world gets real. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker, his Wife and, of course, the Witch. The beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music and their future in a world where everything doesn’t always end happily.

It was pretty good show....clearly not one of my favorite ones at this venue (their last few shows were stellar). I was wondering how they were going to do this show on such a small stage, but it turned out okay. A few standout...continued

PHENOMENAL!!!! A MUST-SEE SHOW!!! This is one of my favorite shows and the performers in this group did some AMAZING story-telling!!! Most of them played multiple roles, each with its own distinct character....I was thoroughly impressed. I'm...continued

I enjoyed this production. I thought the first half was much better than the second half. The first half really could have been the whole play and ended there. The second half was a bit slower and more "down". All of the cast did an excellent...continued

This was a great musical. I really liked the different characters from many tales and their costumes. I especially liked the silent cow - "Milky White". And I liked how they utilized the stage for all the scenes, very clever. The actors were...continued

I really enjoy RAY OF LIGHT THEATRE! They put on interesting musicals time and again. Even with a few rough edges (isn't that what previews are all about?), this show was a blast. Lots of the actors get a chance to shine (and perhaps steal a scene...continued

One of my favorite plays in what has become my favorite LA theater. Very minimalist for an already minimalist show, and I'm not sure why they started without costumes, but I still really enjoyed it. Great costumes and wonderful vocals. So many...continued

One of the best reworkings of Into The Woods I've seen in a long time! Stripped down but so much more fun than the original!

This was one of THE best and most original local theater shows we've seen in years. With a cast of 30+, this was an outrageous and VERY clever mash-up of Sondheim's "Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George, AND the Wizard of Oz. We were...continued

As usual, we had terrific seats in the 5th row center of the Mezzanine, and to my party's delight, no one seated in front of us in the 4th row. As to the show, see me previous review.

I'll say this, what the cast lacks in precision and being in...continued

I'm 66 years old, and have been fortunate enough and old enough to have seen virtually all of Sondheim's musicals in their Original Broadway Cast versions. Into the Woods (ITW) is one of my favorites, and I'm sad to say that this one missed the...continued

If you're lucky, you'll get the chance to see The Oregon Shakespeare Festival Production version of this show, that's far better, proving that paring down the typical production values, IF done well, makes for an intriguing and captivating show. ...continued

This production demonstrates the fine talent at RAY OF LIGHT - from every aspect of this from staging/directing/talent. The creative space and orchestra, in such a limited space, along the excellent staging make this production very...continued

More importantly, this has become a really first rate theater company.....I think one of the...continued

The performers were wonderful. Not a weak link in the bunch. I got stuck sitting behind a really big guy and had my view block a little.
This is the ONLY theater that charges for a program and I don't like that

I love Sondheim and see his shows whenever possible. I knew this was an amateur production when I bought the ticket, and accordingly, lowered my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that all the performers had good voices and were up to the...continued
