The Woodsman

2016 (HD)



Based on the beloved writings of L. Frank Baum, The Woodsman, an imaginative retelling of the origins of Oz's Tin Woodsman, is the story of the Tin Man, the woman he loved, and the witch that would stop at nothing to keep them apart. Through spectacular life-size puppetry and original music, the ensemble of Strangemen & Co. presents an inventive take on one of America's original fairy tales.

"Clever Pure Theater" - The Huffington Post

“'The Woodsman' is an elemental reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s world of Oz. The spectacle is handmade, infused with breath and light." - The New York Times
