  1. Thank you, Anthea, for coming to see Into the Woods last night…. And for your comprehensive overview of the concept and technical aspects of the show, which are certainly praiseworthy. Appreciate your time and shareable review which will help continue to fill seats, even amidst this lovely weather.

  2. I agree with Leslie, whole-heartedly. I appreciate the wonderful review you gave our show. But more so, I really appreciate your excellent writing. So few reviews actually speak eloquently. They say this was good and this was bad and I didn’t like this. Laundry lists. Your review painted vivid pictures and said something interesting. You really have a knack for writing and I would love to see you reviewing more regularly! It’s refreshing. Even if you didn’t like a show, I’d want to hear what you have to say about it. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Doug! The reviewing part of this blog has been lying kind of fallow lately, with my time and energy mostly focused on my own theatrical projects, but I always enjoy writing reviews when I can. Glad you liked this one!
