Calling all theatre buffs, this one is for you! I have a double set of tickets valued at R 400 to give away to see ‘In To The Woods’ which is now on stage at The Pieter Toerien Theatre at Montecasino.
Into the Woods is a sleek and sexy beast of a musical. It is in turn moody and magical, witty and wise. It provides the kind of intellectual and emotional satisfaction, and the kind of exhilarating theatrical experience that you would expect from Stephen Sondheim, the creator of musical masterpieces such as Sweeney Todd and West Side Story.
Don’t be deceived: this is not a musical for children! This is a wicked and wonderful cautionary fairy tale for adults that will delight you and haunt you. It is all about what it is to be human and to long for something other, to wish for something more than what you have, to deal with the inevitable loss and the terrible beauty that this journey through the world offers us.
It has all the allure of the fairy tale, the mystery, the whimsy. And it tells of love, loss, desire, hope… and revenge… With its roots deeply planted in old folk tales, it offers a rich harvest of ideas. It also has a dazzling score with ravishing melody and seductive rhythms. It also boasts one of the cleverest, most complex set of lyrics ever written for musical theatre.
The cast includes none other than theatre doyenne Kate Normington – along with Earl Gregory, Zak Hendrikz, Jessica Sole, Haylea Heyns, Michael Richard and others.
