They’re going to come out of the woodwork about now. You know, the folks who are compelled to tell you why liking that thing you like is a sign that you’re an idiot.
This time, they’ll come out and tell you why Into the Woods is not a good thing to like. We won’t repeat their petty complaints about it here. It is not our intention to help them with their nasty work.
See, here’s the thing. For every person who saw it and loved it on the stage, there are (and will be) a thousand who did not have the opportunity. Now those people will see it too. And they will share it with their children.
Go see it for yourself. Like it if you wish! And don’t listen to anyone who would speak poorly of you for falling in love. Banish them instead, for being a waste of your time.
