Newsies Is A Musical Now


Important question: what would a Newsie look like in 2011?

Answer: y’know, his age young, cute, spunky, and ready to rock THE GREAT WHITE WAY. Sure, Newsies actually took place in at the end of the 19th century. But we are living in an age of such instant nostalgia that it’s almost surprising that the show hasn’t already made its Broadway debut, considering that we’ve already seen the likes of The Lion King, Beauty And The Beast, and The Little Mermaid gobble up Times Square.

Anyway, it’s here. It’s real. And Christian Bale is nowhere in sight (so you’re safe!):
