On Broadway: Disney’s Newsies Nichololas Lampiasi In The MP3 Experiement


Last Sunday Newsies’ Nicholas Lampiasi, participated in the MP3 Experiment 10 - created by the company Improv Everywhere. Thousands of people gathered at South Street Seaport to simultaneously listen to an MP3 and follow the instructions they were given on it.

They were told to “blend in” ahead of time so people NOT participating in the event would have no idea what was going.

They were given a list of certain items they needed to bring with them ahead of time, including bubbles, sunglasses, a dollar bill, a paper with their name on it and their high school yearbook quote, and something red.

They were asked to lay down, walk in slow motion, walk backwards in slow motion, go up to someone who wasn’t participating and give them a dollar bill, make a paper airplane and fly it, find someone who looks like them and take a picture with them, and, to blow bubbles.

According to reports, several thousand people participated in the event. Said ten-year old Nicholas, “It was a great event to have been a part of … very New York for sure.”
