BWW Reviews: Main Street Theater's INTO THE WOODS is Splendidly Beautiful
by David Clarke - Jan 17, 2014

With a handful of revivals and countless regional productions, INTO THE WOODS is a show that both audiences and theater companies love, and Main Street Theater's beautiful production of the classic perfectly illustrates why.
