SYTYCD on Broadway
Posted Mar 28, 2012 @ 10:23 AM
Bring It On is touring with Neill Haskell and Ariana Debose, which is directed/choreographed by Andy Blackenbuehler (We saw it in LA and NappyTabs were there that evening)
Danny Tidwell was in the original Broadway cast of Memphis.

I found these links elsewhere, but thought I'd pass them on.
Here is the opening night curtain call from Newsies. You see Jess first, doing a spin, Evan follows with a handspring across the stage, then Thayne and Alex come out with a third dancer behind them. The whole ensemble returns to the stage, then each dancer gets a second bow after the actors. Jess comes out first with a heel click, at about 1:15, Thayne is second, Alex is third and Evan is seventh dancer to come out (split leap thingy). It's the most rousing curtain call I've ever seen! I can only imagine what the show was like!
The show is getting great reviews. Even the reviews that mention flaws say that the dancing is the best part of the show. I'm so happy for Evan, Jess, Alex, and Thayne, as well as the rest of these amazing dancers.
Also, Disney is streaming a preview of the full cast recording here. Individual songs can be played at the bottom. Sounds really good...some new songs, too.: Original Broadway Cast Recording

Nightline will have a segment on Newsies tonight, Monday, April 16.
Edit: Due to breaking news (?), the Nightline feature will be rescheduled for a later air date.

For those who haven't seen it, here is a sample. All 4 are seen throughout, but in particular Alex/Thayne in sleeveless shirts at 0:48 and Jess/Evan doing the splits at 0:59.
The World Will Know
For those interested, the musical has created a "Viddy" account and will be putting up behind-the-scenes videos of "Tony day" before & during the show.
Or is that link doesn't work, it's easy to join, search "Newsies", then "follow" through Twitter or FB: Newsies Viddy--Tony Awards Hopefully, the four sytycd alums will show up on those.
