May 12, 2017 (Spring Valley) - Not everything is black and white. If you have never had the opportunity to watch Into the Woods, it can be complex and difficult to follow. The more I see it, the more I love it. For some reason, it's one of those shows that resonates with me. Perhaps the show points out we are not on out path in life alone.

October 27, 2016 (La Mesa) - Please support your local high schools. These are the entertainers of the future. High school arts are the building blocks. There is nothing like a full audience to inspire confidence and help them give their best performances.

Into the Woods is a difficult play, especially the lyrical rhythmic songs. Although a play with a large cast is good for high school, I loved watching the cast of 19 come together and give their all to take  us on a journey of life messages. Four fairy tales (Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel) blend together to show us how the paths we take through life and the choices we make influence everything we do, and how we may have to return to the same place to learn the right lesson.
