Newsies has touched the lives of so many different people all around the world. We recently received an email from an amazing Fansie in Italy. It gave us chills when we first read it, and we wanted to share it with all of you, as is. It’s the story of Ilaria, and how Newsies inspired her to keep going.
Heey! That my cig.. Okay no.
My name is Ilaria, I’m 18 years old and I live in Italy.
I’ve never came to NYC so I’ve never seen Newsies on Broadway, sadly.
I found out about this amazing musical only last November, when my director sent me “King of New York” – Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I really enjoyed the song!
Then I watch the movie – It has never came out here, so I downloaded it! (shh, don’t tell anyone ahaha). So, here I am. I also have to say “Thanks” because this June I thought
to quit theatre lessons. I felt like the black sheep, I had such a shit moment bbbut! I’ve found such an inspiring song that is Seize the day.
I’m not going to quit, I changed opinion. I’ve always wanted to sing but I was afraid and was ashamed; I will join a singing choir this year. Courage is when we face our fear.
This is why I love so much Newsies and you guys. Every time I watch a video I feel better and happy.
One of my biggest dream is fly to the USA and watch all of you guys performing on stage but I think it’s a bit hard. I may use a airbed because I can’t swim, uhm.
Hope this musical will go on tour! Really 🙂
Baci e abbracci dall’Italia!
