Into the Woods, it's time to go ... but you'll have to wait one more day. The Public Theater has called off the first preview of "Into the Woods," scheduled for tonight in Central Park, because of bad weather.

The first preview is now slated for 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine musical, the second show of The Public’s 50th season at the Delacorte Theater, will run for five weeks through Saturday, August 25.

The production, a reimagining of familiar fairy tales, stars Amy Adams as the Baker’s Wife; Glenn Close as the Voice of the Giant; Jessie Mueller as Cinderella; Donna Murphy as the Witch and Denis O’Hare as the Baker. Chip Zien, who created the role of the Baker in the original 1987 Broadway production, will play "The Mysterious Man."

Zien just did a an interview with Playbill where he described changes to this new production, which is modeled on a 2010 staging in London. And he talked about a surprising e-mail exchange he had with composer Sondheim.

Said Zien: "I wrote Sondheim an e-mail and said, 'There's a lot of dancing. The Mysterious Man is dancing.' He wrote me back and said, 'The Mysterious Man doesn't dance.' I said, 'He does in this production.'"
