Magical and Enchanting

Review of Into the Woods at The 5th Avenue Theatre

Written by Audrina Gutierrez during an Arts Criticism workshop at Glacier Middle School


Into The Woods at The 5th Avenue Theatre is truly a performance that is magical and enchanting that will leave you in awe. The entire cast are phenomenal young actors and actresses who give an amazing performance with the late Stephen Sondheim's lyrical brilliance with songs that will be stuck in your head for days.

With a reimagine combination of classic fairy tales such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel told by fantastic lyrics, plotlines and acting, the actors pour their heart and soul into these performances.

Everything about the performance is great, the acting, the lighting, every little detail, the sound effects, costume design, props, set design and the theatre itself! I can't imagine how much the cast and crew worked so hard for these performances.

Into The Woods is probably one of the best and intriguing performances I have ever seen, with the enchanting performances in both Act One and Act Two. In conclusion, I do recommend Into The Woods at The 5th Avenue Theatre, it's truly an amazing play that is incredible. Definitely a five star rating.
