Musical Monday- “One Man Newsies”

So, I’ve been putting off posting my top ten live action Disney movies for a while because there are so many great movies.  One that is for sure in my top 10 is the musical “Newsies.”  I have always enjoyed the movie, and a few year ago my best friend took me to see the musical in Cleveland for my birthday, and it was terrific seeing it live!

The music for the 1992 movie was written by Alan Menken (He also wrote for The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Enchanted, and Tangled… can we say DISNEY LEGEND!!!).  The movie was adapted nearly 20 years later and released as a stage musical in 2011, and hit broadway in 2012.

The famous YouTuber, Nick Pitera, put together his own tribute to the amazing music from the Newsies.  His fame comes from not only his amazing vocal range, but his creative and unique videos in which he does ALL of the parts, yes even the female roles!  (He records multiple times with him singing different parts and then combines it for one amazing video!)  So without further ado, I give you- “One Man Newsies”

New Disney Movie- Coming to Theaters, January 2015

Good Morning and Happy Monday!

I normally will be writing about Disney parks, but I’m so stoked about the upcoming release of a new movie that I couldn’t resist!

Over the weekend the I got to see the trailer for a new Disney Movie that will be hitting theaters in January 2015.  Into the Woods was a musical written by Stephen Sondheim and premiered on Broadway in 1987.  In it’s premier year it took the Tony Award for best book, best score, and Best Actress in a Musical.  I had a revival on Broadway in 2002, and I actually got to see it live!  It was wonderful, which makes me even more excited!

This is a fractured fairy tale featuring beloved characters like Jack, Cinderella, Rapunzel, the Witch, and the Wolf.  The Disney adaptation will feature big names like Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, and Chris Pine.

If you plan to go see this movie keep in mind it’s not going to be like the TV series “Once Upon A Time,” and it is a musical so there will be song and dance numbers!  If you’re not a big fan of musicals you may want to avoid this flick!

Here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure!
