Opera di Nepotist debuts in Edinburgh with a full production of this hugely entertaining show. Sondheim's dazzling music and lyrics enthral his audience. Happiness appears to have been achieved but, indeed, be careful what you wish for...
Venue Number 231. Greenside, 1b Royal Terrace, EH7 5AB. 5-20 August 18:30 (2 hours 10 minutes). Suitability: 12+.
We attended this production on 11 August and enjoyed it immensely. The amateur cast of various experience did a great job with the narrative and there were some strong voices and enthusiastic acting with the Prince, Steward, Jack, Cinderella and the Bakers Wife standing out in particular. The band were on stage throughout and played very well. Although long for Edinburgh, the performance time of a little over two hours without an interval sped by, a measure of how enjoyable the evening was. Recommended. - Jon Dartnell

I went to see this show last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Any opening blips had clearly been resolved. Great band and the cast delivered an entertaining performance with energy and panache. Some will surely be attracting a wider audience before long. - CG

I went to Into The Woods on Thursday and thoroughly enjoyed it.It's an entertaining, colourful and amusing production with a tremendous effort from this amateur company. Stand out performances for me from Cinderella, Wolf/Prince, Baker's Wife and the Witch. I'm going back to see it again next Saturday.

By now I hope the reviewer knows the show was NOT cut to one hour, and it did include "Children Will Listen." And the name of the company is Opera di Nepotist, not "Populist." It was still pretty bad, but still .... - Jim Willse
