See The Outsiders Take Over The Today Show With 3 New Performances

May 13 was firmly The Outsiders day over at The Today Show! The morning program hosted three live performances from the new musical, as well as a live on-air interview with producer Angelina Jolie.

Led by director Danya Taymor, and set in 1967 Tulsa, Oklahoma, The Outsiders follows Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade, and their chosen family of "outsiders," who are in a fight for survival and a quest for purpose in a world that may never accept them. The musical opened on Broadway April 11 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

The Outsiders received 12 Tony nominations, including nods for Brody Grant, Sky Lakota-Lynch, and Joshua Boone. "It was surreal!," shared Lakota-Lynch when asked about nomination day. "I couldn't believe it. I reread the list like six times, because Steven Skybell is on there too, and I was like 'Is it the right Sky?' But it was the right Sky!"

The Broadway cast stars Grant as Ponyboy, Brent Comer as Darrel, Jason Schmidt as Sodapop, Lakota-Lynch (Dear Evan Hansen) as Johnny, Boone (Skeleton Crew) as Dallas Winston, Emma Pittman (Chicago) as Cherry Valance, Daryl Tofa (Back to the Future) as Two-Bit Mathews, Kevin William Paul as Bob Sheldon, and Dan Berry as Paul.

Yes. That looks exactly like 1967 Oklahoma.

The Outsiders is a great show. Hope it does well at the Tonys.

I saw the segment, and Angelina Jolie looked incredible. Of course, she had a big coat on, so I can't vouch for the condition of her body. But her face was smooth as silk.

Yes, Angelina looked great, and she spoke very well about The Outsiders representing the show as producer.
