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!
Congrats to Luca Padovan (Newsies, School of Rock) and Aidan Gemme (Finding Neverland, No Man’s Land/Waiting for Godot, Mary Poppins) who have joined the You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown concert at 54 Below as Linus and Snoopy respectively! They join previously announced cast members Joshua Colley (Les Miserables, Newsies) as Charlie Brown, Milly Shapiro (Matilda) as Sally, Mavis Simpson-Ernst (A Little Princess, Evita) as Lucy, and Zachary Unger (Big Fish, Chaplin, Newsies).
