This week the Tony nominations were announced. This is a big deal for me as I live in Texas and only get to see musicals when they tour. It’s my one taste of the live performances until then. Of course I buy the cast recordings and listen to them over and over again but it’s just not the same as the real thing.
I’m so excited that this year Newsies finally made it to Broadway.
I have thought since I was a kid and first saw this movie that it should be (Yes, I know that sounds super nerdy…don’t care!). Now it’s finally happening and I can’t wait for the show to tour so I can see it. Or, you know, I could suddenly get rich and go on a trip to New York. That’s okay, too. For now I’ll have to settle for the cast recording and Tony’s.
I was very happy to hear that Newsies was nominated for 8 Tony’s! This includes best musical! I was so happy to learn that Harvey Fierstein had written the book for the show and he was nominated for it. Love him!!
The cast was so excited about the nominations this week.
In honor of the awesome Newsies news this week I thought it would be perfect to share some of the awesome songs from the movie!
I can’t wait to cheer the Newsies on June 10th at the Tony Awards!! Will you be watching?
