A stunning version of Sondheim's classic.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Into The Woods [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is a wonderful video. So often videos of shows can lose the spark that appears on stage, but thankfully this has kept everything. The singing and acting are outstanding, in particular Bernadette Peters as the witch. It is a bright and showy production, and very very funny. It also retains the elegance that matches Sondheim's complex music, which was lost in the almost 'panto' style British version. All in all, this is a far better recording, and does full justice to Sondheim's show.
