So I’m watching the Newsies: Live again, and I’m freaking out about the character of Medda and the That’s Rich scene.

Not only do I love the shot that they take behind Medda when she says “Welcome to my theatre!”, cause she’s gesturing and speaking to the actual audience, but I love her acting in That’s Rich.


Cause she is the only character that is actually supposed to interact with the audience for her part. In that moment, the audience becomes HER audience and are then brought into the overarching show, and are a part of her own show. How the audience reacts leads to how Medda interacts with them.

I love how they wrote her character, and how Aisha portrays her.

Under a cut bc, predictably, it got long. Sorry it took me a while to do!

quick note: it would have taken me forever to determine my favorite headcanon for everyone, so instead it’s just the first one I thought of, haha
