BWW Review: INTO THE WOODS at Gettysburg Community Theatre
by Allison Rambler - Jun 11, 2018

Into the Woods is arguably a staple of American theatre. As one of the incomparable Stephen Sondheim's most recognizable shows, Into the Woods is performed continuously by a multitude of theatres across America. From middle schools, to universities, to regional theatre and beyond, an active audience member can often find at least one theatre in their area presenting Into the Woods in their current season. A show with this much popularity can begin to feel trite, and theatres may struggle to find originality in their own production of this often-told tale. However, this is not the case at Gettysburg Community Theatre. Their production of Into the Woods trades elaborate sets and costumes for creativity and simplicity, allowing them to truly focus on the issues and moral questions the story presents. The unique twists sprinkled throughout the show are then facilitated through a host of talent, making Gettysburg Community Theatre's production of Into the Woods not to be missed. (more...)
