THEATER REVIEW: "INTO THE WOODS"


RACHEL YORK IS "INTO THE WOODS" AT THE REAGLE MUSIC THEATRE: CLICK HERE

Just northeast of Broadway--about 205 miles--is a Waltham MA theatre called The Reagle Music Theatre where you can often see Broadway performers and sometimes Broadway quality productions. This is the case with Reagle's first musical of the summer Sondheim's dark and twisted fairytale INTO THE WOODS!

It stars Broadway's Rachel York (who has shared the boards with Julie Andrews, Tommy Tune, and Jonathan Pryce) as the evil-luscious witch. She co-stars with former WBZ Anchorman and heck of a vocalist Scott Wahle! They head up an impressive cast, who manage Sondheim's fractured fairy tale of a plot and diabolically difficult score with aplomb. And they can sing too. The whole thing blew me away--the sets, costumes, staging, LIVE ORCHESTRA ladies and gentlemen,LIVE ORCHESTRA-- made for a first rate summer's eve entertainment with ice cream served at intermission and a "meet & greet" with the cast in the foyer on opening night!!!

And guess what--you don't have to mortgage the house to pay for tickets--prices range from $35-$57.00 with FREE PARKING!!! I must be hallucinating you say. Not true. I have witnesses and we're all still humming the score. REAGLE'S "INTO THE WOODS" will leave you deeply satisfied and happy ever after...!
