MATILDA Birthdays, VIOLET Closing, Newtilda Cabaret, and more!

*Quick side note: The post that was suppose to go up on Friday was accidentally set up as a page, but that has now been fixed! Check out Friday’s post HERE.

First, we want to wish a very special Happy Birthday to Paige Brady and Ripley Sobo (Matilda) who recently celebrated their birthdays!

We hope the company of Violet had a great closing performance yesterday! We wish Emerson Steele and Emma Howard all the best on their future endeavors. Happy Trails!

The cast of Once had their 1,000th performance yesterday! Congratulations to the entire cast, crew, and creative team on this milestone!

Break a leg to the kids of “Cabaret for a Cause”! We can’t wait to see videos from tonight.

The Newtildas (Paige Brady, Gabriella Pizzolo, Ripley Sobo, Ava Ulloa) will perform a special cabaret at 54 Below on October 10th at 7 and 9:30pm. Tickets range from $30-$55. You can get your tickets at 54Below.com.

Mia Sinclair Jenness (Les Miserables) is on as Young Cosette now through August 24th. Go see her if you can! And she posted a clip of her singing from the “Learning How to Drown” reading she did awhile ago. You can find that at her Facebook fan page.

Kaci Walfall (The Lion King) added more pictures of her and her Lion King cast members singing “Circle of Life” on the subway. You can find those pictures at her Facebook fan page.

Giuseppe Bausilio (Newsies) recorded two covers this weekend of Ed Sheeran. You can find both below. Great job, Giuseppe!
