BWW Reviews: THE WOODSMAN Ventures Into Enchanting Visual Storytelling in the Land of OzBWW Reviews: THE WOODSMAN Ventures Into Enchanting Visual Storytelling in the Land of Oz

Like the blockbuster hit about a misunderstood green witch from the West, 'The Woodsman' at 59E59 Theaters introduces audiences to a lesser-known tale from the land of Oz. The production relies heavily on visual spectacle to tell the story of a young woodsman who falls in love with a slave girl, only to be punished by the Wicked Witch of the East, who bewitches his ax to befell his limbs one-by-one until all that remains is tin.
