Here’s a media clip from YouTube about our show in Korea. It’s got the most show footage out of any television news program we’ve been on so far. So sit back, grab your popcorn, and enjoy your free ticket to the condensed version of “42nd Street”!
These are the first “42nd Street” show pictures that were taken during our preview performances in Longgang, China
“42nd Street” in Asia is now in preview performances in Longgang, China. The cast moves to Shanghai now for a week vacation before the tour’s official opening night there. There was a really overwhelming response to the first preview in Longgang, so we’re all hoping for a great opening in Shanghai.
We’ve gone through some crazy experiences! It’s hard to run offstage with only 1-2 minutes to do a complete costume change from head-to-toe and realize that your dresser doesn’t speak any English and you’re missing a bow-tie and gold tap-shoes but you don’t have time to play charades to try to tell them this! But all these things add to an amazing experience here in China.
We did a performance of “We’re In The Money” for Chinese media and television stations. This is amature footage of the preview:
I’ve just started my 3rd week here in China and things are going pretty well. A little overwhelming. But I’m with a good group! I survived a travel day of about 20 hours from Toronto to NYC to Hong Kong. Then a few more hours to get to Longgang, China where I’m rehearsing.
My stomach doesn’t seem to be adjusting so well to the food! But I’ll give it time. Rehearsals have been intense. If onstage swing & male dance captain weren’t enough the creative team also put me in to understudy the supporting lead role of Andy Lee in the show! So I have no excuse to ever be bored! I got a WICKED blister/sore/cut/gouge in my heel and I’ve been nursing it for over a week now. Each time I put my tap shoes on I want to cry!
We’ve all fallen in love with the Karaoke Rooms at our hotel here, as the pictures will tell! Other than that, there hasn’t been much free time yet so I don’t have too many exciting stories to tell! I’ll get cookin’ on that, though!
