So, this is my first attempt of a live blog. So it's very possible that these will be kind of short because I'm not going to have a whole lot of time to write each one. So let's start things off with NEWSIES performance of King of New York. First off just let me say that I am SO glad that this is coming to Broadway, and it's just icing on the cake that they got to perform on the Parade! THEY WERE AMAZING (I love the song choice)! I was a bit taken aback by them changing the reporter to a girl. I did know that there was going to be a female reporter in the show, but I thought that that was in addition, not instead of. But even that isn't necessarily bad, I'm excited to see how they play with that. I loved the performance, it wasn't that much better than the movie version, but the very fact that they can recreate that on stage is still pretty awesome. I was excited to see Ryan Breslin (brother to Abigail and Spencer Breslin) performing as Racetrack. He did really good. I love the great energy of the group and I hope and pray that the show will be a massive hit! I CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO BE FREAKISHLY SUCCESSFUL!
