Broadway in Bryant Park: "Next to Normal," "Burn the Floor," "Lion King"
Yesterday was the first complete Broadway in Bryant Park I’ve seen this year. The line up was hard to pass up… Current favorites Next to Normal and Burn the Floor along with The Lion King and off Broadway fare from The Marvelous Wonderettes and The Fantasticks.
Lots of video to share! There’s some Next to Normal, like this clip with Jennifer Damiano, Jessica Phillips (Alice Ripley’s understudy) and Kyle Dean Massey (who is playing Gabe for the summer while Aaron Tevit works on Catch Me If You Can in Seattle) singing “Superboy and the Invisible Girl.”
There’s Burn the Floor with all 20 dancers on stage.
There’s lots more… make the jump for a page full of video and some nifty pictures…
On with more Next to Normal… J. Robert Spencer and Kyle Dean Massey with “I’ve Been”…
Jessica Phillips with the always amazing “I Miss the Mountains”…
and Kyle Dean Massey with “I’m Alive.”
Back to Burn the Floor. Watch for the tall guy to dance into this video from the left and take center stage. That’s Maks and he’s got Karina with him!
And here are a couple highlights from The Lion King set: “Endless Night” and “Shadowland”
No video from Wonderettes (for that I experimented with the video camera in the phone…and that was a mistake) or Fantasticks becuase I was trying to get pictures of Maks and Karina before their set. I did get some up-close pics even though I couldn’t quite snag one of me with them.
