Contest: Win Tickets to Leap of Faith

Update: The contest is now closed. The winners were picked at random from all the entries. Congratulations Touchofgr3y and hugsy2k! Thanks to everyone who entered. If you didn't win, check back here on Monday for a contest for tickets to another awesome Broadway show.

It's been about 5 years since Raul Esparza last did a musical on Broadway and that's too long. But starting on April 3, he'll be singing and dancing and wearing a disco-ball jacket in Leap of Faith at the St. James Theatre 8 times a week. The show has been reworked since I saw it in Los Angeles, but I'm sure Esparza's performance will be just as mind-blowing. And he hasn't looked this good in years (check out the video below).

I have TWO pairs of tickets to the show to give away. Composer Alan Menken will be represented on Broadway with three musicals this spring--Leap of Faith, Sister Act, and Newsies. To be entered to win tickets, tell me in the comments your favorite Alan Menken score (doesn't have to be one of those three). I'd probably have to go with one of the movies that defined my childhood, The Little Mermaid (let's forget about the unfortunate stage version). For an extra entry, tweet about the contest or retweet one of my tweets about it. (Only one tweet or retweet will count for an extra entry.) You must be following on Twitter to win. One winner will be chosen at random on Friday, March 16 at 5:30 p.m. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle in the comments so I have a way to contact you if you win. Good luck!

Little Shop of Horrors! I used to rent the film version every week when we went to the video store (why my parents never just bought it for me, I'll never know).

I have to go with Pocahontas, because it made me so happy, although Little Mermaid owns my heart. Leap of Faith will soar over Broadway!

I don't wanna be too trendy, but Newsies has such an up-tempo beat and gets you excited...so I'm giving the edge to that.

Oooh, this a tough one...I especially love Mermaid and Sister Act, but I might actually go with Newsies!! The songs are such classic anthems and make me nostalgic for that time in my teens when the movie came out...I saw the stage musical at Paper Mill and LOVED it! :)

For me, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Beauty And The Beast. I can't pick just one. Those 3 movies were my favorite as a kid. I was obsessed with them- especially the music. My parents bought me the soundtracks to the movies and I played them nonstop. I may be in my 20s now, but I will still watch those movies occasionally and I still know every line and every song. :)

I'll be retweeting about your contest @alesandrak

I'll go with The Shaggy Dog

It's a Tie...I think...oh I can't decide. One is my grown up favorite - Little Shop of Horrors, especially "Somewhere That's Green" but...I'd be lying and pretending I was more sophisticated than I am if I didn't admit to LOVING Little Mermaid's music. OK, now I'm gonna be singing Under the Sea all night...and you know what? Totally worth getting that song stuck in my head!

It is without a doubt The Little Mermaid, my all time favorite Disney movie. Part of your World was my favorite song for the longest time. I like doing Poor Unfortunate Souls at karaoke :)

I really do love the score to Hercules. I can go the distance! @andytgerm

Vance said...

Aladdin if my fave! But The Little Mermaid is prob. "Best". Or Beauty and the Beast.

Clint said...

Yeah, I love Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. But the score to The Hunchback of Notre Dame is breathtaking. I think its a masterpiece.
