Greens, greens nothing but greens. Streep will be the Witch in ITW!!!
Not The Streep Troll here, but it's been confirmed that Streep will be the Witch. I bet her Last Midnight will be chilling. Very excited to find out the rest of the casting.
Will Mamie play the witch after the transformation?
I MUST be one of the princesses! I have experience!
Will they sang live or lip-synch?
Anne would make a great Cinderella.
Wouldn't it be amazing to see Raul as the Baker?
He'd probably be an Oscar winner before a Tony winner.
Lena Dunham IS Milky White!
That's very exciting news. Do we have an official source for it?
poor r5....try Broadwayworld, you sound sweet....DL is not for you
no official announcement....just speculation. I'm not sure I like the idea of ensemble work.
What the hell is ITW?
R1, I'll be happy to ask if they still need someone for Little Red's grandmother.
Into The Woods. What kind of Sondheim fan are you?
I love some of the melodies, but the show is such an egg-headed yet mawkish mishmash! That waaaaay too rambling and long book is bizarre. I think they will have to focus it, and get it to under 2 hours, AT LEAST! Maryl will be fine, but I'm curious how it will turn out.
Ugh! Enough of this old hag!
Will part of the melody of "No One Is Alone" be altered so it's no longer a shameless note-for-note rip-off of "Candy Man"?
I was just about to say the same thing, r17.
Streep is only appropriate for the ugly old witch part. There's no way she can pull off the transformation.
If they want an old lady, they should just let Bernadette do it. At least she can look beautiful.
R6, that was deliciously terrible of you! Come over here and get your spankie from me!
I will believe this when there is an official announcement. As usual, Streep would entertain and it's Sondheim. Would definitely see if Disney and Rob Marshall fashion a classic.
Anne for Rapunzel! She can cut her hair off, sing a song and die all over again.
R23 Damn! Another freaking Supporting Actress Oscar?
I'm pretty sure Anne would cut a bitch to be the Baker's Wife. Moments in the Woods is such a showy song.
Somewhere there was a list of the actors who participated in the film reading. Megan Hilty was one of the stepsisters, Christine Baranski was the Stepmother, but that's all I recall.
The witch should have been Patty Duke's role!
Morgan James should be in it or else it will be #horrid.
Jack Black as Jack!
Hathaway for the Baker's Wife. She isn't beautiful enough to be a princess, an everywoman role be good for her career, and she'd be at the center of the plot (such as it is). And as with Les Miz, she'd attract funding and publicity.
Jackman for the Baker?
Princes: Choose two from among the following:
