Music Mondays: Seize the Day (Newsies)
This past Saturday, my youngest daughter and I were able to get up to Hollywood and see the evening performance of NEWSIES. WOW, what a show! The talented ensemble delivered a fabulous performance with the award winning choreography (Christopher Gatelli) and all to music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman.
One of the signature songs from Newsies is Seize the Day. The song is sung towards the end of the first act. This number alone was simply amazing. The song has a great message of encouragement and hope. The dancing in this particular number will leave you breathless and in awe of the talented dancers. Here is a video clip to watch from the 2012 Tony Awards that shows you the energy of the Newsies cast.
So channel these lyrics from Seize the Day for this new week:
Now is the time to seize the day
Stare down the odds and seize the day
Minute by minute that's how you win it
If Newsies comes to somewhere near you, get some tickets. We loved it and are hoping to see it again when comes to the OC next year.
