Newsies Keyboard 1 for MainStage
This is the Keyboard One MainStage programming that corresponds to the orchestrations of the US national tour, though it has been updated to address edits made to the score for the current version available for rental. The piano patches use a tweaked version of the stock MainStage piano, though the Synthogy Ivory Grands II Yamaha sample set is recommended if available.
I have a long connection with this show, having programming the original Broadway production as well as the Paper Mill Playhouse pre-Broadway production. I also played the keyboard two book for the Broadway production. I’ve collaborated extensively with the original music team, so this programming is informed by insights I’ve gleaned from working directly with the creators of the show.
