Rick Pender Hails CCM’s ‘Into the Woods’ As ‘The Season’s Best Musical’

Rick Pender takes a look back at Cincinnati’s 2011-12 theatre season in the current issue of CityBeat and singles out CCM’s Into the Woods as “the season’s best musical.” Congratulations to everyone involved with this production, which also received a record number of awards from the League of Cincinnati Theatres!

Of CCM’s Into the Woods, Pender writes, “[the show] wowed everyone who saw it, including panelists from the League of Cincinnati Theatres, who bestowed nine of their “in the moment” awards on it. The production featured a skilled crop of seniors directed by department chair Aubrey Berg in a clever staging that included a very funny cow, a handsome but empty-headed prince (John Riddle), a precocious Little Red Riding Hood (actually a freshman, Lawson Young) and a lascivious Big Bad Wolf (Blaine Krauss).”
