Newsies! Read All About It!

Yesterday, Paige and I took the train out to Jersey to Papermill Playhouse to see the brand new production of Disney’s “Newsies.” I was so excited to see one of my favorite Disney movies brought to the stage and this production met all my expectations. The dancing was top notch! Those guys were just out their killing it!! Jeremy Jordan’s performance as Jack Kelly knocked it out of the ballpark with his incredible vocal chops. After the show closes on Sunday, he’ll be next appearing in Bonnie and Clyde on the Broadway with Laura Osnes, which I’m anxiously awaiting after seeing some rehearsal clips.  The three story set design was very fun, kind of having a Next to Normal vibe, especially with the screens that would pull down and have projections on them. With all the changes and additions, I thought this stage adaption was still able to capture the heart and spirit of the original movie and left the audience wanting more. Will we get more with a Broadway transfer in the near future? I sure hope so! C’mon Disney, let’s make this happen!
