Good afternoon DSM Fans!
Day 5 in New York City for Emily & Michael was yesterday, and this was the most stressful day they’ve had so far, according to them! Please see below for pictures and their comments about their third day!
FROM EMILY: Today was crazy busy. That’s why I don’t have any pictures! Today we started the day with a three hour dance rehearsal and then we ran the whole show so we could get a feel for the pacing. After that we had to each perform our solos for the judge panel and our medleys. It was very nerve-racking but I think I did well. I didn’t get to see Michael but I’m sure he nailed his solo as usual! Tomorrows the big day: Broadway. Can’t believe I get to perform on a Broadway stage tomorrow!
FROM MICHAEL: Wow, today was probably the most stressful day. But, we got to see all our other nominees’ solos and medleys. Tomorrow is the big day! We will be at Minskoff Theatre by 9:15am tomorrow to put the finishing touches on our award show. I think tomorrow will be more fun than stressful. We have all finished with the serious judging and now we can relax and enjoy ourselves.
Through the rehearsal process, I’ve gotten to know another Texas best actor nominee, Drew Shafranek. Texas is heavily represented at the Jimmy’s and we’re all very supportive of each other. Break-a-leg guys! 🙂
Here’s a special sneak peek of the opening number for tonight’s awards show!
Today is Day 6 for Michael, Emily, and the other ladies and gents who are competing in the National HSMTA! Tonight is The Jimmys at the Minskoff Theatre (aka home of The Lion King), and they are going to have a fun filled day of rehearsal for the show tonight!
