INTO THE WOODS Will Not Transfer to Broadway; THE SUNSHINE BOYS Delayed to 2013-14 Season
There has been buzz about the Public's starry INTO THE WOODS making the transition from Shakespeare in the Park to Broadway, as HAIR and THE MERCHANT OF VENICE did in recent seasons, but today producer Joey Parnes tells the New York Times that due to scheduling conflicts, the production will not transfer.
Directed by Timothy Sheader with co-direction by Liam Steel, the cast of INTO THE WOODS featured Amy Adams, Donna Murphy, Chip Zien and more with scenic design by John Lee Beatty and Soutra Gilmour; costume design by Emily Rebholz; lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by ACME Sound Partners, puppetry by Rachael Canning, wig design by Leah Loukas, movement direction by Liam Steel; orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick; and musical direction by Paul Gemignani.
Another production that was aiming for a transfer this season is THE SUNSHINE BOYS, which starred Danny DeVito and Richard Griffiths in the West End this summer. While DeVito had spoken of plans that were underway to look into bringing the show stateside, THE SUNSHINE BOYS producer Sonia Friedman now says that schedules for its stars have delayed the plans and the show is now looking for a 2013-14 opening.
In addition to Friedman, THE SUNSHINE BOYS is produced by Richard Willis, Tulchin Bartner Productions, Roger Berlind and Rupert Gavin, in association with Olympus Theatricals and Scott & Brian Zeilinger, with designs by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting by Neil Austin, music by Adrian Johnston and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph.
