So last night, as I was watching a Gilmore Girls rerun (shout out to Neely!), I was innocently trolling Facebook and the Twitt when a tweet from StitchKingdom caught my eye. A link to this video:
A cute backstage video of the cast of The Newsies preparing for and performing during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Now if you knew me in real life, you'd know I LOVE The Newsies like bordering on obsessed with. For years I've thought this should be a musical (and really, what self respecting musical lover hasn't thought that??) So I was overjoyed when I heard the big news: the show is coming to Broadway! For like 2 minutes...well 101 shows but still. Just a miniscule amount of time. I'm already plotting my trip and I'll be going by myself if that's what it takes. I will see this show. I WILL. I will also be singing and dancing obnoxiously so...if you hate that kind of theater patron, don't go with me. ;)
Anyways, I retweeted the link to the video and my timeline eploded. Somehow Kelly, her sister and I ended up tweeting directly WITH The Newsies and then. They called me a big deal. I wish I knew how to take a screen shot but I don't. But it HAPPENED. My little musical loving, chorus girl wanna be heart about exploded out of my chest. YOU GUYS. For 2 seconds today, a member of the Newsies production team complimented me. I plan to blog videos and news all along the way leading up to the big Newsies opening. And hey, Newsies? If you are reading this, feel free to throw some tickets my way...hint hint. ;)
Now I need to go smack Dave with a newspaper and sing "KING OF NEW YORK" at the top of my lungs. Don't hate, I'm just seizing the day.
Omg. You all know the truth. I'm a closet loser. #notashamed
