Into the Woods Review

Into the woods was an adventurous play that was perfect for the use of your imagination and spirit. Into the Woods had numerous different fairy tales involved which could make a small child feel like he/she was in heaven. The acting, music, concept, stage design, costumes, and even the language of the play all mixed to perfection. The crowd became involved right away with the irony of the play. I liked how Into the Woods was set up in the beginning because it made the play easier to follow. However, the play seemed to be a little lengthy and some of the characters became annoying. I do not believe the second part of the play altogether was necessary. Into the Woods did not fulfill my expectations to the max, although, the play was enjoyable to experience.

Into the Woods started off with three different scenes on stage all at once. One scene was Cinderella, the other was Jack and the Bean Stock with his mother with Jack's best friend the cow, and the third was a baker and his wife with Little Red Riding Hood mixing in scene. Cinderella was on the floor cleaning and the two sisters as well as the Mother were picking on Cinderella and talking about going to the Ball. The second scene was about Jack's mother needing money so Jack was to go into the woods and sell his best friend the cow. The third scene was the baker and his wife talking about how they wanted a child but the witch put a curse on them until they retrieved three items for her. It was ironic how all three scenes required them to go into the woods.

Throughout the play Cinderella, Jack, The Baker, The Baker's wife, Little Red Riding Hood, and all of the other characters mixed into the plot and had weird circumstances erupt in the woods. Finally, Cinderella did not want the price and tried to hide. Jack killed a Giant and was wanted by the Giant's wife while his mother died worrying about her him. The Witch became beautiful and lost her powers. She also had a daughter that had long beautiful hair that characters climbed up to get to her and she was also being looked for by another prince. The Baker and his wife finally had a child and then the wife died. Little Red Ridding Hood had her grandmother was eaten and the wolf was killed by the Baker. Jack stole from the giant's gold and the Giant's wife went on a rampage and attacked the city. She also demanded that her husband's killer be brought to her. Towards the end the group of characters worked together to kill the wife of the Giant. All of the characters went into the woods for a specific reason. Weather it was for love, life or death, or even riches, Into the Woods was a play for everyone.

The overall TEXT (themes, ideas, issues, language) of Into the Woods was spectacular. The themes or the plot was great. Into the Woods was easy to follow and it amazed me how everything came together and how the writer was able to bring together so many fairy tales into one. I enjoyed how creative the play...
