do't try and tell me into the woods is supposed to be comedic. it all falls apart halfway through the show, don't be stupid
well obviously the turning point of comedy becoming existential tragedy begins when the bakers wife is killed, i’m not an idiot
but there is comedy all the way through the rest of the show, with all of the characters. i think we might come across the same problem the jersey boys film had, where the comedy kind of relies on an audiences laughter to feed it, and without the audience, the director will interpret it much more darkly than the stage version. like think about everything the princes do in the stage show, it’s all based on audience reaction. it would totally fall flat without people responding to their stupidity, so the film may interpret their comedy differently. and everything with milky white, like in the show she’s not a real cow so all that comedy will be removed for the film… i think it will just be much more serious than we are used to, and it may not translate as well and may not be as fantastic as into the woods can possibly be.
obviously the trailer doesn’t show us much but i just really get that feeling, u know??
also anon you obviously understand that i am not a dumb and have valid points regarding theatre, please don’t ever attack me again because i do not take kindly to it
does the into the woods trailer look waaay dark to anyone else??
trying not to be negative but any moment/moment in the woods has been cut and the only way the dark subject matter of itw works is if you keep the action and staging comedic and none of that is comng thru yet
I never really fell into any [high school cliques]. I was kind of a loner and stayed on the outskirts in order to try and avoid labels. Ultimately I think it just made me seem anti-social. Whoops.

Trigger warning for discussions of rape.
Here’s the first part of my interview with Reign actress and badass queer feminist Caitlin Stasey! This section covers our chat about rape culture, body-policing, and misogyny in the film and television industry.
The unedited transcript of this interview was 8,000 words long, and covers even more ground, including some really important discussion about LGBT women’s representation. Because I was working within a tight word limit for this assignment, I had to split the interview into two parts - the second half will be up within a few days, so stay tuned!

To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless—of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life? Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.”
What will your verse be?
