Into the Woods – A Modern Twist on Grimm Fairy Tales
I have a feeling Into the Woods is going to be another huge hit for Disney… a great way to end the year with a bang! Into the Woods is actually based on the musical play by Stephen Soundheim and James Lapine. It premiered on Broadway in 1987 and won Tony® Awards for best score, best book and best actress in a musical. Among other awards, the musical received five Drama Desk awards, including best musical. During a recent business trip to New York I took in my first Broadway show Pippin. It is an amazing opportunity to see a Broadway show!
Into the Woods has an amazing cast with Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski and Johnny Depp… many of which I absolutely love!
Check out the new trailer below:
Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics.
