  • INTO THE WOODS - DVD
    Verified Purchase

    I HAVE SEEN THE PERFORMANCE ON PBS MANY TIMES; OWNING THE DVD IS A BONUS AND I AM SURE WE WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR AS THE STORY IS A WONDERFUL AND REALISTIC MIX OF COMEDY AND DRAMA WITH SEVERAL BEAUTIFUL SONGS. WELL WORTH THE COST.

  • Simple and Profound

    I remember seeing this broadcast on PBS many years ago. I've always loved fairy tales, and those represented in Into the Woods are among my favorites. I loved Act I, which creatively and humorously retells and interweaves these tales, but Act II just didn't work for me. My precious fairy tales were deconstructed and the happy endings were all blown apart. This was terribly disappointing to my husband whom I met many years later, who absolutely loves this show and got to see it on stage as well. Suffice it to say he has successfully reintroduced this show to me and now I absolutely love it too! Yes, it brings beloved fantasies down to earth and into real life, but as such they become profound metaphors of life, some obvious and others not as much. It's not hard to see why it won several Tony Awards. Performances are all excellent, if not thoroughly polished -- the narrator & Jack's mother are weak on their singing, but it works for those characters. The leads are all incredible. The music is very catchy (I can't get it out of my head since we watched this DVD) and mostly upbeat; the lyrics are incredibly clever, sometimes wickedly so, which I think is a Sondheim trademark. I would rate this about a PG-13 production. In many ways it is coming-of-age stories with some adult implications (the wolf's costume especially comes to mind!). Everyone can easily love Act I, but I think Act II requires a little maturity to truly appreciate it (one of my complaints in my younger viewing was that it felt tedious; now I can look back and see I didn't really get it!). This DVD contains only the complete stage production; there are no special features nor any extras at all. I think it could benefit considerably from someone producing a featurette on the show, hence my 4-stars on value.

    Saw it on Broadway with this cast and loved it. Enjoyed this recorded performance-- it captured the spirit of the staged version. Wonderful cast and music.

  • Bernadette Peters steals yet another show.
    Verified Purchase

    Into the Woods is one of the best broadway musicals ever produced, and Bernadette Peters (The Witch) is as enchanting as ever.

  • Bernedette Peters gives one of her best preformances in this wonderful, not so happy musical about what happens if you do marry the prince and the happy ending has come to an end. Complete with the bean stalk and the baker's wife as well as Prince Charming, this musical is one of the best ever!!!
