Soo… it’s taken me a long time to post this but, I’m gonna talk about my first time Broadway show.
I saw Newises. It was fantastic. I LOVE BROADWAY. I LOVE THEATRE. THEATRE=LIFE. When we were at the stage door, getting our playbills signed, I broke down crying. I was just so in awe of everything that the Newsies cast represents and everything that they’ve done. Soooo then my friend goes (to explain why I’m crying) “She’s not from here. She’s never been here before. It’s a bit overwhelming.” So then the guys ask “Well, where are you from?” And I said “I’m from Georgia.” Then one of the guys (it happens to be Race AKA Ryan Breslin) “Oh really?! I’m from Atlanta!” So I’m like, “I’M FROM MARIETTA!” Well, it turns out he’s from a high school that is in the same county as mine and he knew where my high school is located! He told me “Send Georgia my love!” Do you hear that, Georgia?! Ryan Breslin loves you! It was such a great experience and all of the guys were just so cool about everything and me freaking out. And it was just really inspiring.
ALSO, Corey Cott (Jack) and Ben Fankhauser (Davy) actually stopped and I had conversations (with them) about the colleges that they both went to and Corey Cott said: “Oh you’re into musical theatre, too? Well, yeah, Carnegie Mellon was a fantastic school! I loved it. And I definitely recommend you audition. And if you don’t get in, go to another school with an awesome theatre program. Just keep trying. Never give up. Good luck!” So, I’m guessing it’d be cool if I list Corey Cott as one of my references?
