Carrying The Banner….One Last Time

When Newsies premiered in movie theaters on October 10th, 1992, it was savaged by the critics.  But it was beloved the fans.

Two decades later, Disney took a chance on this seemingly forgotten live action movie musical and decided to give it another go.

The result was Newsies on Broadway, which closes tonight after 2 1/2 years on the great white way.

I was fortunate enough to see the original cast perform a few months after the show opened. It was still the Newsies I knew and loved, just that much better.

2 and a half years is a good run. As sad as I am see to see it go, I know that it will come back, as all Broadway shows do eventually. And I am happy for the fansies who were unable to come to New York, but are now able to see the show on tour.

P.S. A treat for my fellow fansies, Newsies Got Swag.
