Adventures in video

Since I'm experimenting with including video on my blog, and I love the Tony-winning musical Spring Awakening, I thought I'd try to post this short clip of the cast singing "I Believe," taken at the time of last fall's Broadway stagehands strike.

Wouldn't it have been great to be walking by the Eugene O'Neill Theatre and see the amazingly talented John Gallagher Jr., and some of his castmates, giving an impromptu concert! (Ok, if you had tickets and couldn't see Spring Awakening because of the strike, that wouldn't have been so great.)

Anyway, now that Gallagher has left the show, his fans are probably experiencing a little bit of withdrawal pain. I hope this helps!

LOL. I'm a big fan of Johnny's and have been filling the void with Old Springs Pike concerts. If you get the chance, they put on a great show. Too bad the strike and scheduling conflicts put the brakes on his plans to star with Matthew Broderick in The Starry Messenger.

Wow, you're so lucky. I'd love to see Old Springs Pike in concert! I didn't realize he was supposed to be in The Starry Messenger. I'd only heard about Matthew Broderick. That would have been awesome! I hope I get to see him on stage again. And he was so gracious when I saw him at the stage door after Spring Awakening. What a sweet, polite young man!
