YBAN at DREAM STREET, Luca Padovan and Aidan Gemme Join CHARLIE BROWN, and more!

First, I was lucky enough to see Dream Street‘s opening night last night! The show was awesome–I saw Nicole Wildy, Ashley Lanzoni, Abigail Paige Murphy, and the Blue Cast in the rotating roles. The entire cast was great, and I am sure their counterparts in the other casts are equally talented! Get your tickets now if you’re in the NYC area on DreamStreetNYC.com! I also got to meet two of the actors from the show who are featured on our site: Alexa Valentino (Number the Stars) and Sophie Knapp (Once, A Little Princess)–you can see our pictures below. All of us at YBAN wish “broken legs” to the entire cast and crew for the rest of the run!
