Into the Woods was lovely. I spent chunks of my childhood listening to the soundtrack and dreaming of being a West End musical star. (If only I could sing or dance.) So I know and love the music but I don't think I've ever seen it staged.

And it was astonishingly good. It featured a couple of girls from Liaisons, Amber and Fiona. And Tomcat Mr Aldred. So it's always a bit more interesting seeing something when you know people in it. But they all sang beautifully. And it's such a difficult score. I was very impressed.

Most impressed of course by the two princes who ably carried their princesses around the stage without any apparent effort or sweat. Take note, Valmont.
