'The Woodsman' Off Broadway Review: A Little-Known Romance From the Land of Oz

'The Woodsman' Off Broadway Review: A Little-Known Romance From the Land of Oz
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

A really lovely little piece of story theater, “The Woodsman” is drawn from the “Oz” tales by L. Frank Baum and relates the life and times of the Tin Woodsman before Dorothy dropped into the saga.

Currently running at 59E59 Theaters, this striking production devised by Strangemen & Co. offers an appealing mix of narrative, music, movement, mime, puppetry and imaginative visuals that is likely to entertain pre-tweens as much as it will charm sophisticated adults.

Set in the terrorized realm of the Witch of the East, the early portion of the story covers the boyhood of the Woodsman who grew up as a human with devoted parents. As an ax-swinging adult of the forest, he meets and mutually falls in love with Nimmee (a sensitive Eliza Simpson), the Witch’s oppressed young servant.
