NEW YORK — Fans of the Broadway hit “Newsies” might be forgiven for doing a double take these days.
That’s because 17-year-old Jacob and David Guzman, who share the same DNA, are now sharing the stage at the Nederlander Theatre, so rare an event that no one in the theater community believes it has happened before in the modern era.
The identical twins from Brockton, Mass., are spending their senior year of high school in New York doing what they’ve seemingly always done — dancing and being inseparable.
“We’ve always been with each other,” says David. “We’ve always had a great time with each other.” His brother, who happens to be 21 minutes older, echoes the feeling: “We just enjoy our company together.”
