The Woodsman At 59E59 Theater


By Anna Boisseau


L. Frank Baum may have become famous for The Wizard of Oz , but his forgotten writings are what inspired the James Ortiz-directed The Woodsman. The production features the familiar character of The Wicked Witch of the East and new friends like a cursed woodcutter and his forbidden love, who are brought to life through song and Japanese-style puppetry. Show times vary, so check out the website for more information. $18 (or $12.60 for members), Tuesdays-Sundays, January 30-February 16, 59e59.org.
