One cannot describe what a surprise hit of the season, Newsies was when it hit Broadway in 2012. Fans roared in support of the struggling newsies of New York, as they rally around their leader Jack Kelly in order to strike against the rising fees put on by their boss. The show won a few Tony’s during its time on Broadway, including best score and best choreography. All of which were rightfully deserved.
Back in 2013 as I was visiting New York, I did manage to see the theatre where Newsies run took place. Unfortunately I did not have the time to be able to see the show that was quickly gaining many, many fans throughout its run. Which is why I am all the more excited to be able to see who is the King of New York at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse’s production of Newsies on Thursday night.
This will be my first show at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse. I have heard about their unique style of dinner theatre that many of my close friends have found to be an amazing experience. With being praised countless times I can not wait to see what is in store for me.
I will be seeing Newsies the musical, at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse on Thursday, June 28th at 7:30.
