Emily talks about finally seeing Rachel York in Grey Gardens, visiting Aimee Semple’s church, and how she still hates L.A. Patty talks about the American Psycho concert at 54 Below and the Rebecca episode of “American Greed.” They go over the stories of the week, including Cynthia Erivo and Joshua Henry in The Last Five Years, Norm Lewis in Man of LaMancha, and ATC’s upcoming Rock’n’Roll Gospel play.
Patty and Emily discuss the cancelation of The Prince of Egypt concert, and where the production should go from here. They also talk about their revisit to Something Rotten and the new cast members. This week’s theatre stories discussed include Newsies being filmed, a new TKTS booth, and An American in Paris is closing earlier than announced. Plus, more dreamcasts!
For the Newsies’ first anniversary on Broadway, we’ve taken matters into our own hands. We set up their own auditions for the role of Patrick’s Mother. Auditioning for the role are Laura Benanti, Lindsay Nicole Chambers, Ann Harada, Alex Wyse, Kate Baldwin, and Jessica Phillips.
We really loved Newsies that we talked about it for a really long time and had to do a two part review. If you don’t know the movie or the changes they made to the show, Part two may contain spoilers!
To celebrate Newsies opening on Broadway this week, we made a third comedy video!
Newsies starts previews on Broadway next week, and we’ll be there! To celebrate, we made another video!
We wrote this short film about the Broadway production of Newsies!
