We are in San Francisco until February 13th when we leave for Vegas and then LA. My dad and I flew from Seattle to San Francisco last Monday with the whole company. On Tuesday we met our new tutor, Lua, who took us on a great tour of the city. We took a cable car down to Fishermans wharf, saw the sea lions and old ships and then had lunch near the water. After the tour, Finn and I walked all the way back to the hotel with my dad and Finn's mom. We walked ALL THE WAY UP LOMBARD STREET which was not easy (I have little legs). My great Aunt came to see the show on opening night and then we went sightseeing (presidio, cliff house) the next day with her and her dog. Then my dad and I took an overnight flight back to NY for the weekend for my sister's Bat Mitzvah.
Wow, time flies when you're having fun! We've already been to 5 cities since the last time I wrote in Chicago. I've been to St. Louis, Denver, Portland, Seattle and now San Francisco since then. I've included some pics from most of these places.
We were in Denver around the holidays in December which was awesome because my sister had off from school in NY and came to visit us with my dad for 10 days. The other boys families also were in Denver so all the sisters and parents got to spend time together. My grandparents also came for a few days so I got to spend some time with them, and my cousins who live in Boulder came to see the show and have dinner with us which was nice.
We had a company holiday party and did a Secret Santa giveaway (I was Victoria's secret santa). It was alot of fun! My cousin Benny made all the boys fidget spinners (see pictures) which everyone liked playing with. My family and I went to Boulder and saw the Flatiron mountains (plus all the other mountains in the area). I didn't have school so we were able to do alot during the day too. We went to movies, and the mall and I got to fly my drone that I got for the holidays.
We had our 100th show in Portland and celebrated with a TON of voodoo doughnuts! Unfortunately the weather wasn't very good and they had to cancel 3 of the shows while we were there (ice). So that was just a short trip.
From Portland we took a bus to Seattle which also had awesome mountains. My dad came back to Seattle so that my mom could go home and be with my sister for a few weeks. We did an underground tour of Seattle, went to the Pike Market, played in a park underneath the space needle, and more! Here are some photos from Seattle:
Chicago was AMAZING! We had so many people come to visit and see the show, it was an incredible few weeks. My dad and sister came, and then my friends from NY, and then my sister surprised me and my mom by coming back with other friends of ours! PLUS, we performed in the Thanksgiving Day Parade (and met a ton of people there like Laura Bretan from AGT, the Harlem Globetrotters, STOMP, Musicality from AGT) and then had a great Thanksgiving dinner with the cast and crew. Then some of the cast members of Hamilton Chicago came to see FNL and I got to meet them. MIND BLOWN!
Here is the link to the Finding Neverland performance in the Thanksgiving Day Parade in Chicago. Fast forward to about 23 minutes in. http://wgntv.com/2016/11/24/watch-wgn-tvs-2016-mcdonalds-thanksgiving-parade-on-demand/
Here are a few pictures from our stay in Chicago...
Hey everyone I have a lot to tell you guys...
Yesterday we went on 2 field trips, to the Great Lakes Science Museum, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The museum had a cool theatre called the dome (I will post pics of that soon). They had a movie from a squirrel's eye view which was super cool! And there was a room where you could take a picture of your shadow! Then there was kenetic sand which showed the latitude and longitude of the world. After that cool stuff we went to the...
ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME which was only the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD (probably because I am obsessed with Rock and Roll). They had so much history there! They had JOHN LENNON'S GUITAR!!!!! And Keith Moon's drums (I'm a big fan of "Tommy") and Ringo's drum kit too! What could be better!
Did you know The Beatles got into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 with The Beach Boys and Bob Dylan?
All four Beatles are now in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as individual performers as well!
It definitely put me in a Beatles mood, so now I am asking everyone who reads this to COMMENT ON THIS PAGE WITH YOUR FAVORITE BEATLES SONG. I'll get things started with mine, which is "Hey Jude".
I am loving my time in Cleveland! I hope to see you at one of my shows.
We had a great "golden day" yesterday! We went to an awesome park and also got to relax a bit. I posted new videos on the "Media" page too. Check 'em out!
Today we're heading to the ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME! Pics from today will follow soon!
Halloween on the road is so much FUN!
Alot of people in the cast and crew got dressed up and Jose set up trick or treating at the theater in Rochester. We went to different dressing rooms and prop areas for candy before our show and it was AWESOME! I went as Freddy from School of Rock!
Cleveland is a great city! We picked the perfect time to be here because it was game 6 & 7 of the world series! Unfortunately the Indians didn't win while we are here, but it was still exciting. Our hotel is only a few blocks from the ball park, so when the Indians tied the game during game 7 in the 8th inning we could hear the crowd and the city go wild!
Below is a pic from Onesie Wednesday and me outside the theater. I'm so happy we'll be here for 2 and a half more weeks. I can't wait to check out the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame (my dad is going to be so jealous)!
Some pics from the bus ride:
Hey guys, I'm sorry I haven't written for a little while. We are about to leave Pittsburgh and I just wanted to give you a short summary of what's been happening the past few days...
On my golden day (no school, no show and no travel), I went to a great park here with an awesome playground with a few of the other boys. It was a beautiful warm day and we had a lot of fun.
We're not really in a routine yet, but eventually I should have about 4 hours of school each day and the show every night (sometimes 2 shows per day). We grab something to eat in between school and the show every night. Sometimes we have an hour, sometimes more. We try different restaurants and I've discovered some great places to eat (mostly mac & cheese, pizza, burgers, pasta). If you ever want to know the best places for those foods in Buffalo and Pittsburgh let me know. We've gone to Bill's Burgers a few times in Pittsburgh because it's in the hotel and it's pretty good. We watched a little of the Badgers football game there on Saturday (they won! Go Badgers!).
My sister and dad came for the weekend (it's only a 6 hour drive from Westchester). They got to see Eli perform as Peter a few times (this is his home town so he had a lot of people in the audience which was great). We had some good meals and got to spend some family time together which was nice. Unfortunately we didn't get a lot of sleep the past few nights because there was a fire alarm at 3am in the hotel and the night after there were some loud neighbors who woke us up.
I miss a few things from home, like my family and friends, but this has been such a great tour so far, and a great experience that I hope lasts forever.
Here's the link again for the tour dates. If you know anyone in these cities please tell them to come see the show. Or if you can come, I'd love that as well.
Wow! What a great week its been. Doing interviews, going to parties, signing autographs... it's been so amazing I don't even know where to start. So, i'll share some pics for now.
Some stage shots....
Some party shots...
I love meeting fans of the show!
