My bud Ramin over at the Daily Beast notes that the off-off-off-so far off Broadway it’s in New Jersey production of Newsies is a hit!
Sold out shows! Singing audiences! Talk of a Broadway production! Yippee!
The big news to me is that there are Newsies groupies called Fansies (!??–really). And they compare it to “ an American version of Oliver—and Calhoun says it’s Annie, but with boys.”
No surprise that Christian Bale (who played the hero role of Jack “Cowboy” Kelly in the film) has distanced himself from the Disney flop. He always struck me as kind of an ass.
Can’t get into to see the NJ production and don’t want to wait for the Broadway show… watch this remix featuring Laddy Gaga.
