The Woods Witch

Little Fox Theatre—Kids Venue (MTYP Mainstage)

Wow! I checked my surroundings several times to ensure that I was a Kids’ Fringe. The show opens innocuously enough with a shadow puppet prelude on a lunar screen. As soon as the actors appear on stage, they tug your emotional heartstrings. The next scene feels like an Intro to Research Methods class before the scene twists again.

Among the verbosity, setting changes, Greek names and the sometimes frightening images, I can’t imagine this show to be very friendly to young kids. As an adult and veteran to literature, it takes some effort to keep up with the plot. I can’t say that this is my first pick of plays to bring the kids.
