Little Newsies Things I Noticed From The Second Row
Whenever the rooftop is onstage, there are four actors sitting at the bottom
There are a lot of newsies shirtless during Carrying The Banner
How when two characters are talking in the background, they’re actually talking
How close Joey will get to Stephen and Andy
You can almost always see the Santa Fe (Prolouge) shirt under Jack’s blue shirt
How clear individual voices are
Crutchie standing in the corner during the fight yelling “get them boys” and other encouragements
Davey prying Les from the Delancys and carrying him away upside down
Before Santa Fe how theres’s two actors on the top of the towers on either side nursing their wounds from the strike
How they use “Trolly Strike Enters Third Week” paper foralmost everything
How many quick changes Kaitlyn Frank/Sniper has
How there’s almost always some newsies in the towers when the scene is on the streets of New York
Lighting again the lighting was fantastic
Joey’s suspenders are not just maroon but plaid?
Right before the lights come up for act II, as the actors are setting the stage for the scene before King Of New York, you can still see how defeated they look in their body language in the darkness, still completely in character
How Nick Masson’s hair started in a quiff and slowly deflated throughout the show
Even though Darcy is clearly rich, he wears the same outfit the first day of the plot as he does the third day
The towers are at the very front of the stage during Once And For All
Listen, uh, when I was your age, I went through some pretty difficult stuff, and my parents weren’t around either…But then I met a cop, and he helped me. And now everything is alright, and all that stuff is behind me. I’m here for you now. Hey, it’s okay. It’s alright. All that stuff is behind you now. I promise.
I wanna make more musical aesthetics, but there are so many characters and shows and relationships to be inspired by so I’d love some feedback! The shows I am currently familiar with are in a list down below, with the characters I’ve done aesthetics/moodboards for next to them.
I’m going to bed now because it’s late here in Norway, but feel free to message me, reply to this post, tag me in a post of your own etc. and I’ll try to make some more aesthetics tomorrow!!
Musicals I am familiar with (with characters I’ve already done aesthetics for):
Les Miserables (Enjolras)
Billy Elliot (Michael)
Heathers (Veronica Sawyer, Jason Dean “JD”, JDonica)
Hamilton (Eliza Schuyler)
The Phantom of the Opera
Little Shop of Horrors
Bonus: Anything Disney related (Esmeralda)
You can request anything related to these shows, whether it is relationships, friendships, crackships, characters, songs, the musical as a whole etc. I’ll make an aesthetic for pretty much anything! :)
