A humorous spin on Stephen Sondheim’s classic musical Into the Woods, became the funkiest show in the West End featuring music from Gorillaz, Massive Attack, Prince, Basement Jaxx, Stevie Wonder, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, James Brown, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, Black Eyed Peas, Bob Marley, The Chemical Brothers, and many, many more.
Into The Hoods follows two children lost in the ‘hood’. An evil landlord befriends the children after they have played truant from school and they are offered a room in his tenement block on the condition that they work for him. Reluctantly, the children embark on their mission which leads them to the flats of Spinderella, where they discover gold Adidas trainers; Lil Red, the owner of the bright red hoodie; Rap-on-Zel, the producer of the finest quality long weave (hair extensions) in the city, and Jaxx (who lives in the basement), the owner of a white I-pod.
Winner of a Herald Angel Award, and receiving 5 Star reviews from The Scotsman, The Herald and The List, Into the Hoods became the must see show in Edinburgh for audiences of all ages.
Director Kate Prince has choreographed a range of television (including Strictly Dance Fever, BBC), stage shows and music videos while the professional dancers in the show perform internationally with artists such as Kylie, Nelly Furtado, Pink, Black Eyed Peas, 50Cent, Beyonce and Snoop Dogg, when not performing with ZooNation.
