Taking Woodstock, Broadway Un-Bound
Posted March 31, 2009
Ang Lee's new film Taking Woodstock, a tale about one man’s unexpected place in the summer of love, is not just about a great music concert; it is also about Broadway. As Adam Hetrick points out in his article in Playbill, the film bears an impressive theater pedigree with “Tony nominees Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening) and Kevin Chamberlin (The Ritz, Seussical), Tony Award winners Dan Fogler (Spelling Bee) and Liev Schreiber (Talk Radio), Olivier Award winners Henry Goodman (Tartuffe, The Producers) and Imelda Staunton (Entertaining Mr. Sloane, The Corn Is Green), as well as Skylar Astin (Spring Awakening), Paul Dano (Things We Want), Kelli Garner (Dog Sees God); Mamie Gummer (Dangerous Liaisons, Uncle Vanya), Stephen Kunken (Frost/Nixon, Rock 'n' Roll, Our House), Richard Thomas (A Naked Girl on the Appian Way) and more.
