Newsies - Andrew Warren

Andrew Warren's setup for Newsies at the Patchogue Theatre, in Patchogue, New York.

Andrew's write-up and gear list below photos.

"Newsies! What A Fun Book To Play!

The drumset book for Newsies includes a number of different styles such as rock, swing, march-like snare drumming, and even some orchestral percussion aspects.

For this run we did not have a percussionist, so, I tasked myself with adding some of the extra percussion aspects that I felt were important. One was the muted/unmuted triangle part in the chorus of 'Watch What Happens'. This was a challenge because I already had a cymbal part and had to mesh both together. The quick change was tough, but have no fear 'The Miller Machine' is here! I had never owned one before, but that moment helped me realize it’s the best way to get the job done.

The most enjoyable part for me was getting to work with so many talented people from all over the World and meeting one of the original Broadway cast members who was the choreographer!"

"It hasn’t always been easy (and it’s certainly very odd right now!) but personally I’ve always enjoyed the challenge. I’ve heard a few things along the way that have informed how I’ve thought about New York City and the idea of 'making it'”.

"The musical experience of recording a Broadway cast album ranges from easy to difficult depending on the circumstances. I find that the two factors that contribute most to the quality of the experience are: 1) how good the band is; and 2) how soon after you started the show you record the album"

"When I was preparing to conductNice Work if You Can Get It, I began by watching a video of the conductor and marking my score with any cues or beat patterns that were not obvious to me. I wanted to be completely comfortable with the Musical Directors choreography before watching the video of the stage and trying to put the music to the action of the actors and dancers."
