THE SCREENING ROOM: Playbill Video Warms Up With the Newsies (Video)
07 May 2012
Broadway's Newsies received a 2012 Tony Award nomination for the athletic, balletic, kinetic choreography created by Christopher Gattelli. Playbill Video recently caught up with the show's dancers, who offered an exclusive peek at their special pre-show warm-up routine at the Nederlander Theatre.
Here, the four dancers chat with Playbill about Gattelli's choreography, which is designed to tell story through dance. "It's absolutely story," Gattelli told Playbill.com. "Even when they back-flip, what that represents is their vitality and their energy and their youth."
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
