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
by Rachel Weinberg - Jan 19, 2015

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. Written by James Ortiz and co-directed by Ortiz and Claire Karpen (who is concurrently performing as Cinderella in another forest-centric production of 'Into the Woods' at Roundabout Theatre Company), 'The Woodsman' is a creative delight and distinctive in its use of non-verbal storytelling. The forest in these woods has a very natural feel, as the ensemble employs real branches on the stage. Yet Ortiz's incorporation of his original puppetry designs in the shows adds a mystical element.

BWW Reviews: A Visually Rich, Complex TEMPEST At the Shakespeare TheatreBWW Reviews: A Visually Rich, Complex TEMPEST At the Shakespeare Theatre
by Andrew White - Dec 11, 2014

Director Ethan McSweeny clearly knows his way around the play, and offers mature Washington audiences a visually rich, complex Tempest that has its share of magical moments, but which at its core is unvarnished by sentiment. And Geraint Wyn Davies gives us a Prospero who is a temperamental, gravelly, flesh-and-blood nobleman, more Hemingway than Santa Claus. (more...)
