I’m not from USA, I don’t live there. But I watch the Tony’s every year. Since I saw the Newsies presentation I’ve been in love with the show. I heard the OBC as much as I could and watched as many bootlegs as I could find but I lost some of the dialogue for the bad audio and the speech pattern and accent used in the play which I don’t get sometimes. To finally see it on HD was amazing. Newsies live was everything.
I waited five years for that: to see Newsies. And It was totally worth it.
This is why professional stage recordings are important. In my country, theatre is a thing that gets really overlooked and isn’t appreciated. We rarely get new plays. And usually they use theatre-actors-wannabes; they use soap opera actors cause the multimedia mass media company we have owns the only big theatre company we have so it reuses its actors. We barely get a musical that’s well sung or acted or danced. And we rarely get any broadway musical adaptations.
I own a copy of every professional stage recording out there: Rent, Phantom of the Opera 25, Les Mis 10 & 25, Chess in Concert, Shrek the Musical, etc… And I’m definitely gonna own a Newsies Live copy.

I have admired Eric Church for years and years. His music plays such a huge role in my life. To me, he is music. I saw Eric for the first time last night. I stood two inches from his boots, and I watched him perform for nearly 4 hours. I sang every word to every song, and the memories from those songs took me back. They knocked the wind out of me. Nothing will ever beat this. I’m glad I got to experience this one with my mom. I will remember this night for the rest of my days.
