    Theater is not dead!

  2. Dragon Age: The Musical Is Everything A Templar Fangirl Could Possibly Need

    My heart.

    If there's one thing I've learned playing Dragon Age, it's that ladies can't resist the allure of a tortured-yet-charmingly-sarcastic blond Templars. Here, we see Alistair and Cullen having a musical face-off (Into the Woods-style) about who is more charmingly tortured. As one YouTube commenter points out, a Lyrium-addicted Cullen telling Alistair that he "knows nothing of madness" makes a heck of a lot of sense. Plus, shirtlessness.

  3. Review: Into The Woods Delivers What Fans Want

    Sondheim’s beloved musical retains its dark charms.

    For many, bringing Into the Woods from stage to screen was something they never wanted to see attempted; and yet, the material just seemed too perfect for cinema to resist. When Into the Woods was announced, there was a sense of dread amongst fans, along with the excitement. Was it really a good idea to change Jack's age? Was Meryl Streep a good casting choice, after missing the mark with the music in Mamma Mia? Would a Disney movie actually keep the Wolf’s dark vibe?

  7. Holy CRAP Does Meryl Streep Deliver In This Clip Of “Stay With Me” From Into The Woods

    I'M NOT CRYING YOU ARE

    News of the upcoming Disney rendition of Into The Woods has been pretty touch and go for serious Sondheim enthusiasts (actual little girl Red Riding Hood? Possible changes made to the libretto? Johnny Depp's weird costume?), and one of the biggest things everyone's been worrying about is the Witch. Sure, Meryl Streep can act her way out of a paper bag, but does the former Mamma Mia star have the vocal strength required for such a complex and dynamic role?

  8. Emily Blunt Comments On Captain Marvel Rumors, Calls Them “Kind of Amazing”

    Disappointment?

    The rumors this weekend that Emily Blunt might have been cast to play Marvel's Carol Danvers in the upcoming Captain Marvel appear to be just that—rumors. Screencrush asked her about it over the weekend, and while the actress denied any involvement with the film, it seems like she's pretty into the idea now.

  11. Our First Look at Johnny Depp In Into the Woods Is Here, And It’s Ridiculous

    AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!

    Though perhaps it's not too ridiculous, on the scale of Johnny Depp-ness. Still... I'm not sure what to make of this. It's a goddamned fur zoot suit. If you need a palate cleanser, Entertainment Weekly's alternate covers—featuring Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, James Corden, and Mackenzie Mauzy—are behind the jump. We need to talk about Meryl's hair(yl).

  15. Remember That Song They Wrote For Disney’s Into The Woods? It’s Not Making It To The Movie

    Fiddleferns!

    We know the reports of plot changes made to Into The Woods were greatly exaggerated, but the movie still won't be exactly the same as the show. You know what won't be there, though? That song they were going to add. Oh good, because we refuse to geekily memorize any more lyrics in this show. The songs you've already got are difficult enough, Sondheim!

  16. [Update] First Trailer for Into the Woods Has Lots of Actors, No Actual Singing

    "Look at all these cool people we got!" Yeah, OK.

    Yesterday we showed you some stills from the Disney fairy tale musical Into the Woods, and now we have the first trailer! Alas, we get the visages of Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, and more, but we don't get to hear them actually, y'know, sing any songs.

  18. Stephen Sondheim Goes Into Damage Control Mode Following Tales of Disneyfied Into the Woods

    I smell BS.

    Last week musical nerds clutched their hands to their bosoms and wailed unto the sky when word hit the 'web of Stephen Sondheim saying the movie version of Into the Woods is being hacked and slashed at by Disney until it resembles something appropriate for children. Only now Sondheim has released a statement saying his original quotes were taken out of context.

    That's so nice. Not good, not bad, just.... nice.

    So you know how the award-winning Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods is getting made into a feature length movie by Disney? And you know how people die and have sex with each other and then also die in that musical? Yeah, apparently you have less of that to look forward to in the film version. We'll be talking specific plot details after the jump, so head's up for spoilers if you haven't seen the show before.

  20. Meryl Streep Looks Crazy Scary In Into the Woods, You Guys

    And All Was Right With the World

    Yesterday unofficial set pics from fairy tale musical Into the Woods caught our eyeballs, and now Disney's given us our first look at Meryl Streep as the witch. Not as scary as The Devil Wears Prada's Miranda Priestly—who is, really?—but I'll take it.
