'A BEAUTIFULLY FULL-BODIED SENSORY EXPERIENCE!'
-TheaterMania

'A RUSTIC FANTASY! ONE OF THE MOST AUTHENTIC PRESENTATIONS OF OZ THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN! INFUSED WITH A SENSE OF WONDER THAT IS ONLY POSSIBLE WHEN IMAGINATION IS ADDED.'
-New York Theatre Review

The Woodsman gives these darkly beautiful, haunting and heartbreaking stories new life with the aid of spectacular Bunraku puppetry and song.

Nick Chopper is the woodcutter who is in love with Nimmee, slave-girl to the Wicked Witch of the East. Determined to prevent their marriage, the Witch places a powerful curse on Nick's axe so that it dismembers him whenever he swings it. But his undying love drives Nick to replace each of his lost parts with a tin one until he transforms completely into the Tin Woodsman.

Now, if he only had a heart...



The running time of The Woodsman is 1 hour without an intermission.
