Review from Jamie Kravitz

Ray of Light Theater's production of Sondheim's Into The Woods was a solid and enjoyable production. Sets, staging, lighting, and orchestra were great, especially given the small theater. The performances were good, though many of the voices...continued

For being the Preview night, the cast was right on spot! They all preformed Sondheim very well. They were all very talented and casted well for their parts. Without being miked, however, lyrics were hard to hear over the music at times. If...continued

Review from Pat Saye

I saw the original touring show in 1988 and loved it then. This was a true effort to recreate that magic. Great voices, good acting and, as usual, I absorbed my favorite musical theatre genius....SONDHEIM. Selfishly, I would love to see...continued

I took my Granddaughter, as a treat, & we both enjoyed the first act, but we thought it should have ended right there! The group numbers were quite enjoyable, but it was difficult to hear the words in many of the numbers, especially Jack, & his...continued

Review from Lauren B.

This production of Into the Woods was intimate, well-staged, and showcased many talented characters. Though the theater was a little cozy (if you're in the back row I hope you're not tall, and if you need to use the women's restroom I hope you're...continued

This show had me grinning from ear to ear. It's my favorite show anyway, and this production was top notch. The intimate theater made it all the better.

This was my second time seeing this play, and the first time seeing it (or anything else) at this theatre or with this theatre company. The theatre itself is small, intimate & casual. The seats were comfy and the temperature was good. The sound...continued

Excellent show and theatre! I was impressed from first arriving through the doors (the walls are decorated like the woods to get you feeling like you are entering the woods yourself). Nice touch! I grew up on watching this play with my mom and...continued

The whole experience reminded me of a late high school perhaps early college production. Somewhat disappointing...perhaps I was just tired, but I left at intermission.
Ugh!

What a show! What a cast! Into the Woods was the most enjoyable theatre experience I've had in Ssn Francisco in a long time. Thoroughly professional, wonderfully exuberant--the cast didn't miss a beat. I am a great Sondheim fan, it was such a...continued
