I don’t understand why people are mad at me for watching bootlegs. People reason that watching it online would mean that the actual theatre production wouldn’t get that much money anymore. Let me just say that, I live all the way in Asia, and in a country where stage tours rarely visit. I will watch all the bootlegs I want because let me just tell you, that if ever the show DOES tour in my country, I would still sell my kidneys to get money and buy tickets for it, even if I’ve already seen it in my crappy phone screen.
Doing theatre is stressful, but theatre stress is a different kind of stress. Theatre stress is stress that I want; it’s stress that I crave. I thrive off of it. Theatre stress is good stress, because theatre is my passion.
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.
Summary: Y/N is sad at her best friend’s wedding when realizing that she’s so behind, she doesn’t have a future with someone and most probably will end up alone. That changes when Calum catches her at the hallway ready to leave and proves that it doesn’t take the title of husband and wife to have the best dance of her life
The stupendous Mcelroy brothers in all of their glory.
(A WIP, don’t worry, Griffin is in place-holder stage for now. I just rented a tablet for the first time and I’m slowly learning digital stuff, so I thought I’d doodle~)
Seriously though, these guys are amazing. I want to be friends with them, they make me laugh so incredibly hard and simultaneously wish that I could laugh and talk with my own siblings more. I hope that they keep on being happy and wonderful in the future! (Sorry again, Griffin, promise I’ll finish you soon, haha)
I did see the rent tour a couple of weeks ago, and not to be dramatic, but it was probably one of the most memorable events of my entire life. The cast was incredible and I loved each actors portrayal completely. Rent is very dear to my heart, and from seeing the movie for the first time, to hearing the soundtrack for the first time, to seeing it live, hopefully my next big rent experience is being granted the honor to be in it on stage somewhere.
