THE SCREENING ROOM: Newsies' Kara Lindsay, Alan Menken and Jack Feldman Explore "The Anatomy of a Song" (Video)

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.

Hosted by Disney Theatrical Productions president Thomas Schumacher, the trio analyzes "Watch What Happens," the first-act ballad performed by Lindsay in Disney's Newsies.

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
