BWW Review: Village's INTO THE WOODS Has Moments in the Woods but No Connections
by Jay Irwin - Sep 16, 2017

But Sondheim's show, as much as it's done by every professional house, community theater, or school is by no means a bulletproof show and something egregious must have happened (or didn't happen) between then and now as the production I saw last night, while technically good with well sung songs lacked any kind of emotional resonance, heart, stakes, or even connection between the characters. And for a show like this, pretty singing is not enough. (more...)
