This weekend I’m playing in the pit orchestra for a community theater production of Sondheim’s Tony winner “Into The Woods”. The musical is a funny blend of fairy tales into a story of love, lust, and death by angry giant. I enjoy the music and storytelling in this show. My only criticism is the blatant use of a deus ex machina near the end.

Some of my favorite quotes:

   Cinderella: Opportunity is not a lengthy visitor.  

   Cinderella’s prince: I was raised to be charming, not sincere.

   Rapunzel’s prince: Dwarves are very upsetting. 

   Jack’s Mother: Children can be very queer about their animals.

   Witch: I'm not good, I'm not nice, I'm just right.
                I'm the Witch.
                You're the world.

This time I did the trumpet and flugelhorn parts. Quite fun! The show was scheduled for an outside amphitheater, but we only did one show outside. Thanks to a great huge thunderstorm we moved the second show indoors.
