Broadway's Epic Fail

Olivia Lombardi (A Little Princess) is set to take part in Broadway’s Epic Fail, a concert only described as “an evening of songs from movies that should never become musicals as written by the best in the business.” The concert will be held on September 7th at 6pm and the 8th at 9:30pm at Sophie’s NYC. Tickets can be purchased at BrownPaperTickets.com, but keep in mind that it will NOT be kid-friendly! More information can be found at www.broadwaysepicfail.com.

The boys of Finding Neverland at A.R.T. were interviewed by Boston Herald about their lives as child actors working on a Broadway bound production. Read it at BostonHerald.com!

Another promo has been released for Kids of the Arts’ “Lyrics for Life”! Take a look!

And here are pictures from the kids of The Lion King, Matilda, and Motown!

So sorry for the lack of updates! I know a lot has happened since I last updated on Saturday, so here is a gigantic update.

On Your Feet is officially coming to Broadway! The upcoming Broadway production will play the Marquis Theater. Opening night is set for November 5, 2015 with previews set for October 5, 2015. A developmental lab is scheduled for fall 2014 with Chicago tryouts occuring next spring. We do not have an official cast for the Broadway run quite yet. However, the recent reading featured young actors Alexandria Suarez and Ezequiel Pujols.

HUGE congratulations to “The Sound of Music LIVE!” which took home an Emmy this past Saturday! The broadcast won Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control for A Miniseries, Movie or Special. The production is still in the running for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, which will be presented at the Primetime Emmy Awards on August 25th.

A new Matilda starts this week! Please welcome little Fina Strazza to the company. A new batch of Matildas are set to start within the next month, so be on the lookout!

D’Andre Lee has returned to Kinky Boots after a week off. David Austin has departed and is now rehearsing for the national tour of Kinky Boots. Welcome back, D’Andre!

The kids of Matilda were asked by BuzzFeed what they want to do when they grow up. You can read the cute article over HERE!

“Dora and Friends” premiered on Nickelodeon last night. Congratulations to Isabela Moner (Evita) who plays Kate! You can read all about her success in Hollywood and Broadway at Cleveland.com. It’s a great article!
