Last night Nik and I attended the much anticipated (by me at least) Into the Woods play at Hale Theater. I have been looking forward to this play since we purchased tickets back in like, March. We have had a magnetic calender on our fridge with the date written in to remind us every day.
I won't bore you with the details, but it was a pretty amazing play. It is hands-down my all-time favorite play and I just about hyperventilated when I saw it was coming to Hale. The only thing that could have made it better, would have been Bernadette Peters playing the part of the Witch herself. But oh well, we can't have everything.
Review: Hale had a great turnout, like always, and that helps the atmosphere to be a little more exciting (even though this night was filled with Blue Hairs). All the parts were well presented and believable. The decorations were sweet! If you have not seen the "new" Hale stage, it is all movable and stuff, and they took full use of it. Tree trunks and leaves everywhere so there was a great ambiance. Nik mentioned that the music is a little repetitive, but I kind of like that about the show, you always know the tune, just the lyrics change. And it get stuck in your head very easily, so that could be good or bad.
If you are fan of this play, comedy, or musical theater in general, this is a must see. It runs through November 29th.
