my 7yr old daughter and i watched newsies, the musical, during our mommy/daughter nyc trip. it was so very entertaining... did not disappoint even though we are huge newsies, the movie, fans.
the little changes in the story from the movie were done well. the song "santa fe" was a little overdone by the end of the show but did not take away from how entertaining it was. male lead was adorable but singing & dancing was just ok. female lead was beautiful but her voice left a lot to be desired. the chorus was EXCELLENT! dancing was terrific. tumbling was very entertaining. quite a few "sexual innuendos" but little ones would never catch any of them (at least my little one didn't catch any of them).
most of the cast come out to the front of the theater after the show for autographs and pictures. so very gracious, courteous and friendly. it was an absolute treat.
nederlander is a GREAT theater with major pros and cons. small theater, steep rows so NO BAD VIEW. however, even as a petite woman, the seat was TOO TOO snug. an older man in our row who had knee problems could not sit in his seat so my daughter gave up her aisle seat so that he could stretch his legs out BUT as a result, my daughter had to squat in her seat.
even with the little hiccups, it was a WONDERFUL experience. i will be back with my older daughter and husband to catch the show again when it isn't so cold in nyc.
