Disney's Newsies on Broadway – 06-04-2012,02:40 PM
We saw Disney's Newsies on Broadway on Friday night and WOW what a show! So much energy in the fantastic dance numbers!
If you have an opportunity to see the show, I recommend it! It's good to see Disney's theater division with such a hit on their hands!
Initially, Disney had planned Newsies for the stock and amateur market. According to Disney Theatrical Productions, "The stage adaptation had been developed for licensing to theatre groups and its Paper Mill run intended only as a pilot production for that market. The planned next step was to immediately release the title to the theatres and schools who had for many years made Newsies the single most requested title of all the Disney film musicals not yet adapted to the stage."
The broadway production was initially a limited run, but is now an open-ended engagement.
We subscribe to the broadway series here in Orlando. For the 2012/2013 season we have: Beauty and the Beast, Million Dollar Quartet, Sister Act, Mary Poppins, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and Memphis. Wicked is returning as a season special (separate purchase).

The first Les Miz trailer was released last week. I am BEYOND excited. I love Hugh Jackman, so having him in my favorite musical is super exciting.
I think we are going to try to get back to NYC to see Newsies again soon.
My employer's holiday party will be in Morristown, NJ this December so we are planning on a few nights in NYC either before or after. We typically wing it and see what's available at the TKTS Booth that day.
Recently I've found that there are better tickets on the web in the days just before a show than at TKTS. I found my sister and friends tickets to see Peter and the Starcatcher on Friday afternoon for the Saturday night show. $55 each for center, four rows from the stage. Of course that doesn't always work, and I definitely paid $150 each for my Evita tkts the same night!
OMG!! One of my daughter's favorite movies of all time. If it comes within a few hundred miles of us, we will see it for sure.
