I can’t wait for the Into the Woods movie. Did you walk on the set, gone into the woods?
It’s being shot in London so I didn’t go over there. Steve went over for all the vocal recording with the actors. I did write [the screenplay], so I did work from here closely with [director] Rob Marshall. It’s so many years later, so there’s a little level of detachment from it, which is a good thing because obviously to make a movie, you have to compromise some of the things from the original. In particular, some of the music had to be cut.
Can’t wait to hear that new song for Meryl Streep’s Witch.
It’s beautiful. Smart and funny. And oh my god, is she talented. We all know that, but what I didn’t know is what an amazing singer she is. I’ve heard her sing in movies, but everyone is really surprised by the range and depth of her voice. It’s like she jumps through the speakers. It’s quite extraordinary.
And your Annie star Lilla Crawford is playing Little Red! Put in a good word for her?
Of course I put in a good word for her! She’s so beautiful. I think she’s just gonna glow on the screen.

Bernadette Peters in Into the Woods, 1987.
And That’s A Wrap!! - Flora Moody
Flora Moody, who did the hair and make up of Anna Kendrick (Cinderella) and Chris Pine (Cinderella’s Prince), wrote an article on her blog talking about her experience with the cast and crew during the Into The Woods shooting.
Flora Moody (hair and make up artist of stars like Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine) and James Corden say their last goodbyes on Twitter, now that shooting for Into The Woods is finished.
Can’t wait to see it, very excited!!!!
Asked if part of the appeal of his current project, the musical Into the Woods, was the return to big emotions, Pine responded,
“Yeah. That was really more because it was such an incredible cast and I don’t have a very big part, but I just wanted to be a part of that group. And I never…
Apparently, Joss Whedon (director of The Avengers) got to see Anna Kendrick (Cinderrela) and Lilla Crawford (Little Red) film the No One is Alone scene for the Into The Woods movie… Damn. That should have been me!
The more news I get about the film, the more excited I’m getting about it! Can’t wait!
Meryl Streep about the new song Stephen Sondheim wrote for Into The Woods (✗)
Don’t fuck this up, Meryl, I’m trusting you xD
Can’t wait to hear the new song, knowing Sondheim, it’s gonna be perfect!!!
Flora Moody, hair and makeup artist in the Into The Woods movie, tweets about her last day with Anna Kendrick (Cinderella). She also does the hair and make up of other artists like Chris Pine, so we can assume they have also finished shooting. Moody had tweeted a couple of days ago about wrapping up.
Excited!!! Now we only have to wait 395 days…
I certainly can! Whether she’ll reply or not, that’s another question…
Sorry, but I had to erase my name from this picture.
Julia McKenzie was from the original London cast, wasn’t she? I’ve sadly never seen that production… I’ve looked everywhere for it, but can’t find it.
I have watched three videos online from that production, but she isn’t in any of them (‘Agony’, part of the ‘Prologue’ and ‘Hello Little Girl’). So, my opinion is based on the studio recording alone.
I really liked ‘Children Will Listen’, ’Last Midnight’, ‘Our Little World’ and ‘Stay With Me’. I didn’t like the ‘Witch’s Rap’ (or ‘Witch’s Entrance’ and ‘You Wish to Have the Curse Reversed’). I don’t really know how I feel about ‘Lament’, though…
Sorry not to be more specific, but I’d need to have watched the whole production :(
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Bernadette Peters’s face.
Bernadette Peters will ALWAYS be the perfect witch.
