@jonnyfullofglee: he'd make a great Jack in Into The Woods! He's just got the look and would sing a great Giants In The Sky. @Lydia_Granger: Into the Woods. I wanna see him sing about giants in the sky.
The original Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods opened in 1987 and starred Ben Wright as Jack. After the star-studded film adaptation is released, maybe the classic musical can be revived on Broadway.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
