STAGE TUBE: BEACHES' Shoshana Bean Performs Acoustic Version of 'Wind Beneath My Wings'
Drury Lane Productions and Jennifer Maloney-Prezioso (Broadway's Spring Awakening, Rock of Ages) present the pre-Broadway production of Beaches, A New Musical, based on the beloved novel by Iris Rainer Dart. The show began previews June 24 and runs through August 16, 2015. The original musical is written by Iris Rainer Dart and Thom Thomas, with music by David Austin and lyrics by Iris Rainer Dart. The production is directed by Eric Schaeffer (Broadway's Follies, Million Dollar Quartet). Show star Shoshana Bean is back at it with another entry in her backstage vlog, this time performing the show's anthem, "Wind Beneath My Wings."
Along with the video, Bean posted: "I have had the pleasure of singing this song every night as Cee Cee Bloom in Beaches the musical all summer long at the Drury Lane. So as our run draws to a close I figured it would be an appropriate finale!"
The all-star cast is led by Bean as "Cee Cee Bloom," and Whitney Bashor as "Bertie White." The young versions of the characters are played by Presley Ryan as "Little Cee Cee" (How The Grinch Stole Christmas atMadison Square Garden, NBC's "The Sound of Music Live") and Brooklyn Shuck as "Little Bertie / Nina" (Broadway: Matilda in Matilda; Annie)
