So six months ago yesterday, I saw Newsies for the first time on stage. Growing up I loved the movie so much and would watch it SO much. I could recite the whole movie line by line. Being a child who always loved musicals and Broadway I always wished that Newsies would become a stage so. I live in New Jersey and when I found out that Newsies was going to be coming to the Papermill Playhouse I freaked out. Unfortunately I never got to see it there. So imagine how much I freaked out when I heard they were coming to BROADWAY!!! As soon as tickets went on sale I bought them for me and my sister, who loved the movie just as much. On March 26, 2012, a 20 year long dream of mine came true as I sat in the orchestra (left side, center isle seat) and gazed at the stage in amazement. I literally was shaking with excitement and anticipation. As soon as that first note started tears started streaming down my face. I was beyond happy. The show was more than anything I could have asked for. I was nervous because I had built it up so much in my head that I may be disappointed. This was NOT the case. Jeremy Jordan’s Jack Kelly blew me away and OH the dancing. As soon as the show was over I wanted to rewind and watch it again. It was such a magical night. After the show was over we did the stage door. This cast is one of the nicest casts I have ever been around. They are all so wonderful and so super sweet and just SO appreciative of the support from their fans. I have fallen completely in love with this show and the cast. I have seen the show 3 times (on my birthday and I won Lotto once) and was able to attend the Barnes and Noble event they had (which was AMAZING.) Thanks Newsies for a great 6 months!
