“The story has so many interesting archetypes, starting with the young innocent who goes off into the forest and finally encounters the wolf,” Megan says. “We wanted to play with all of the ideas.”. “It’s not inappropriate for children, but it’s not the ‘Velveteen Rabbit,’ either,” Shannon adds. “We both love folk and fairy tales, and it’s our own exploration of the forest, fear of the unknown, what it means to be safe and innocent and to venture into the dark woods. There are some scary parts but nothing graphic.”.

I’m sorry to say that I have never seen “Into The Woods,” but Izetta Klein as The Witch singing “The Witch’s Rap” made me wish that I had. According to Daily News A&E Editor John Orr, Klein was a “powerhouse” when she performed the role in the Players’ production a year ago. She sang her way through the audience on Saturday with gusto, and kicked and twirled in her flighty green costume. And when it comes to recognizable characters and songs, few can match “Puttin’ on the Ritz” from Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein.” Michael Reed cast a long shadow as The Monster, the same role he essayed for Players in 2014. Chris Janssen, nattily attired, made an excellent foil — comic or otherwise. Super-duper.

Poon was born in Japan of Chinese parents. Her family moved to Hong Kong when she was very young. She began to learn ballet in her elementary school. “I loved it so much that I begged my mother to take me to more dancing classes outside of school,” the dancer said. Poon’s mother did. She found a wonderful teacher for her six-year-old daughter. Her name was May Hung. She was a graduate of the Royal Ballet School in London and at that time she was also a principal with the Hong Kong Ballet.
