Anyhoo, Into the Woods is my absolute favorite musical. I saw the PBS recording when I was 2 1/2 and watching the musical, actually, is my first memory. This musical is the reason I'm in theater and has probably had more affect on my life than anything else- ever.
Which may sound a little weird, but all of my idiosyncrasies, the unusually high maturity level I had as a child, my compassion, deep-thinking, and obsession with older women (thank you Bernadette Peters) stemmed from the moment I saw the show.
You know how most kids want to watch Barney or something over and over again when they're little?
Well- I watched Into the Woods...honest to God...every day from the time I was 2 1/2 til I was 5. Then weekly after that, barring extreme sickness or trips.
Anyways, just thought I'd introduce myself and say hey!
