Oz in the News 1.22.15

woodsman-master495Led by a Tender Heart, Before It Is Ripped Out- ‘The Woodsman’ Tells the Tin Man’s Tale  Using words is dangerous in this eastern corner of Oz, yet sound is everywhere: the mournful music of a violin, the rasp of a witch, the spooky wind of the woods. A movement piece with puppets, James Ortiz’s “The Woodsman” is an elemental reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s world of Oz. The spectacle is handmade, infused with breath and light. The performance lasts only an hour, and maybe that’s not long enough. By letting a few more moments linger, this show’s talented creators might just lodge “The Woodsman” in our hearts.
