Here at Fansies Alliance, we support our Newsies through it all, whether they’re singing and dancing at the Nederlander or have moved on to other projects.
That’s why we’ve created the New Projects category for our blog. It’s a place where we’ll feature what all of the Newsies of old are up to…from the creative team to the actors who brought the show to life.
If we’re missing anything or anyone, let us know in the comments below!
The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Kyle Coffman, the original Henry and the model for the Newsies logo, recently left the cast to pursue a role in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
The musical is based on the final, unfinished novel by Charles Dickens that famously left the identity of its murderer unknown. Drood is one of the kookier musical productions, and it involves a hefty dose of audience participation. Theatergoers vote on the identity of the killer each night.
Kyle Coffman is joined by Two-time Tony award winning actress Chita Rivera, Stephanie J. Block, Will Chase, and more. Previews start Oct. 19; show opens Nov. 13. Get your tickets here.
