Into the Woods

In In to the Woods, Stephen Sondheim, juxtaposes Act I against Act II to precipitate a serious understanding of the disconnection between our fantasies and reality in a spritely piece of musical wonder. The director’s job here is to reveal this relationship while seducing the audience with the fun and spectacle of Act I. Act I plays the theatricality of fairy tales, complete with a dancing cow. The style of the staging and movement is crisp and larger than life. Act II to begins is the same style then slides into a more realistic style to reinforce the honesty of the fear and longing for the meaningful moments of life.

The director orchestrated a clear vision…that remained consistent throughout.
