"Critic's Choice! Sondheim writes complex music. Lamb's production makes it look easy. A wondrous cast, an incomparable trip into the woods and out again."
- ( La Jolla Village News )
"Superb! The best staging of Into the Woods I've seen in many years. The show goes right in every way, from its excellent across-the-board cast, to Robert Smyth's funny and smartly detailed direction, to Pamela Turner's lively choreography, and its imaginative costumes and sets that pop right out of the imagination and onto the stage."
- ( North County Times )
"More satisfying than the Broadway revival!"
- ( San Diego Union-Tribune )
"An extremely cool thing! A rock solid sense of real life as a metaphor for something profoundly greater than ourselves."
