Phantom of the Opera ‘I Survived the Falling Chandelier’ Coffee Mug
Ok, I’m starting to become obsessed with Disney’s Musical the Hunchback of NotreDame. Not only was Ciara Renee’s performance from yesterday incredible, but I just heard Out There from the show as well. This male ballad has everything you hope for in a broadway anthem.
It has belting, energy and a ton of hope and emotion. Watch the video below to see how much energy this song has. It reminds me of Idina Menzel singing The Wizard and I or even Let It Go.
If you follow the new season of broadway that’s launching and you’re a fan of Disney, you’re already excited for the launch of The Hunchback of Notredame by Disney. Disney brings you shows filled with awesome special effects, amazing voices and incredible costuming so I was already excited to see they were bringing another show to broadway. Then when I heard Ciara Renee singing the song Outcasts I got even more excited.
Leave it to Disney to produce one of the most loved Halloween movies “Hocus Pocus” and then create a showstopping feature for Halloween at their theme park feature their most famous villains, and then top it off with exact look and sound alike cast members to recreate a famous scene. That is a huge run-on, but it is so worth it once you see the performance. I mean seriously, Disney is ridiculously amazing normally, but to do this as a limited show and pull it off is insane.
There are some pairings on broadway you wouldn’t think could work, then there are some that blow you away. Think about Carol Burnett singing and competing with Julie Andrews, Nathan Lane performing with Matthew Broderick, or Idina and Kristin which went great on stage but may have ended not so well. One pair that took over the stage and “killed it” was Chita Rivera and Gwen Verdon.
When I opened a copy of a book I got, which is listed under my favorite broadway gifts posts, one of the first things you see is Chita.
In the brief section she talks about one of her favorite memories is dancing along side Gwen. I know this is going to sound horrible, but I had no idea the two had ever performed together, especially in a huge show like Chicago. I went to YouTube to see if there is a video of the performance and not only can you find the one below, but there are a ton of others from their PR tour.
