THE SCREENING ROOM: Newsies' Kara Lindsay, Alan Menken and Jack Feldman Explore "The Anatomy of a Song" (Video)
26 Mar 2013
Kara Lindsay, who stars as headstrong female journalist Katherine Plumber, joined Tony Award-winning Newsies songwriters Alan Menken and Jack Feldman for "The Anatomy of a Song," the latest episode of the American Theatre Wing's "Working in the Theatre" video series.
Here's how the episode is described: "Host Thomas Schumacher gives us a unique look at a song — what it is, where it comes from, the process from idea to stage, and how it fits in a show. He's joined by Tony, Oscar and Grammy award-winning composer Alan Menken who plays and sings us through the stages of some of his most memorable work including his numerous collaborations with Tom Schumacher and Disney Theatricals; Newsies lyricist Jack Feldman; and Newsies star, actress Kara Lindsay."
Menken and Feldman took home the 2012 Tony Award for Best Original Score of Newsies. The musical was also awarded Best Choreography (Christopher Gattelli). To learn more about the ATW's video projects, visit AmericanTheatreWing.com.
