Playbill just published an article with lots of photos of “Into the Woods” cast.
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning Into the Woods, which explores the shadows of well-known fairytales, receives a new outdoor staging beginning July 24 at the Delacorte Theater as part of The Public Theater’s programming.
Heavy rains during the July 18 week caused delays in the production’s rehearsal schedule, which pushed back the original July 23 start date to July 24. Into the Woods will officially open as scheduled Aug. 9 for a run through Sept 1.
Tickets to Shakespeare in the Park are free and are distributed, two per person, at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park the day of the show. The Public Theater is again offering free tickets through its Virtual Ticketing lottery at www.shakespeareinthepark.org on the day of the show.
The Delacorte Theater in Central Park is accessible by entering at 81st Street and Central Park West or at 79th Street and Fifth Avenue.

A new trailer for “On The Road” has been released yesterday. Check it:
The Weinstein Company has released, via Yahoo! Movies, a one-sheet poster for Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master”. You can see the full poster in our gallery.
I came across some promotional stills of “The Master” that was released earlier this week. Check them in our gallery.
One last thing: Though much attention will be rightly paid to Phoenix and Hoffman, Amy Adams as Master’s wife may have the most revelatory character. Without giving too much away, Anderson cleverly includes a few scenes that cause the viewer to re-think the power structures in Master’s universe. It is the 1950s, after all, and wives must stand dutifully beside their husbands, even if something rather different is going on behind the scenes. In this regard, Adams’ quiet strength as an actress works beautifully.

Paul Thomas Anderson secretly attached his “The Master” to a screening of Stanley Kubrick‘s The Shining at an American Cinematheque screening last night in Santa Monica’s Aero Theater.
A source at Hollywood Elsewhere said he saw PTA “lingering in the back [of the theater] before The Shining started” with wife Maya Rudolph. Before Kubrick’s film came on screen, there was the announcement “that there would be a mystery 70mm movie projected as a second feature.” Audiences left after watching Kubrick’s masterpiece and then came back half-hour later to see a 70mm project of The Master, which was reportedly around 130 to 150 minutes.
Here’s some impressions regarding the movie, by audience. Mostly about Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, but also was told it’s the best work Amy did so far.
I’m still digesting everything I saw, but it was pretty amazing. It was like a strange fever dream. [But] not audience friendly AT ALL. An ambiguous ending and not one likable character. And without any ‘milkshake’ lines, it probably won’t have the breakthrough that There Will Be Blood had. There are three or four scenes between Phoenix and Hoffman that are barn burners. It also containts the best work Amy Adams has ever done.
Phoenix WILL win Best Actor unless Daniel Day Lewis blows us away with [his] Lincoln performance. This is Raging Bull territory for him. Believe it or not, his performance is stranger than that fake doc he made. The only way I can describe him is ‘animalistic.’ (I think the Master title refers to more of a dog and his master. At least that was the vibe I got). The style feels like Terrence Malick by way of There Will Be Blood. – Hollywood Elsewhere
