Disney has another hit musical on their hands. No, it’s not Tarzan on Broadway, that still hasn’t opened yet. Instead it’s High School Musical a made for TV musical that’s really scored with the ‘tweens. Not only is the show popular, but the High School Musical soundtrack is currently ranked #2 at Amazon and has been ranked #1 in the last few days. You can also download the High School Musical Soundtrack at iTunes.
All you Newsies fans should check this out too. High School Musical was directed by Kenny Ortega who directed-choreographed the cult-hit Newsies. (I completely forgot that Christian Bale (Batman Returns) was in Newsies… wow) Could High School Musical be the new Grease?
The show next airs on The Disney Channel Feb. 13 at 8 PM (ET).
