Amy Adams and Donna Murphy to Star in Into the Woods in Central Park

We're all excited about the upcoming Shakespeare in the Park production of Into the Woods, but we're even more excited now that we hear that the Witch will be played by multiple Tony-winner Donna Murphy, and that multiple Oscar-nominee Amy Adams will play the Baker's Wife. (No word yet on who will be playing the Baker.)

According to the New York Times, Into the Woods will begin its five-week engagement at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park on July 23, with opening night set for August 9. Timothy Sheader will direct, with co-direction by Liam Steel. As You Like It, the Public’s other summer show at the Delacorte, will star Oliver Platt, Lily Rabe, Stephen Spinella and Renee Elise Goldsberry. Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the show is scheduled to run June 5 to 30.

Tickets to the shows can be arranged by becoming a "Summer Supporter" of the theater. Visit http://shakespeareinthepark.org/support for more information.
