Ok so here’s my final “Goodbye Newsies” post

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon one of my old tumblr posts from the 30 day Newsies challenge and the question was “Why do you love Newsies?” and going back and reading my answer almost made me cry. Here it is:

Gah this show is so important to me. I might not even be sitting here in this dorm room about to start studying theatre had it not been for Newsies. I’m so grateful for this show.

I’m about to start posting my personal Newsies posts now so just bear with me
OKAY so I just had a thought about how like the show WILL live on even though it’s not playing on Broadway
like think about it: after the tour their gonna license it to regional theatres and schools and like that’s really cool
like we get to see different interpretations of it from costumes, sets, new actors, etc.
and I just keep thinking about little kids auditioning for their school’s production and that being the reason they fall in love with theatre
This really could be a good thing so let’s be positive (after of course we cry through the night)
But yep that’s all for now


Okay guys, so if you didn’t already know, the fansies are making individual goodbye books to the cast members to give before Newsies closes. So you should definitely submit pictures/messages to the cast members. BUT now there is also a book for Jeremy Jordan that I’ll be putting together. If you have any things you want to say to him or pictures you’d like to send, email them to me at jeremyjbook@gmail.com. Let’s try to focus on his role in Newsies, but it would also be nice to wish him luck in Finding Neverland & The Last 5 Years since those are his upcoming projects. For the full list of goodbye books, look here:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SI8taRaCIcuZwjqBeQDFH_8HLuMsv5-8qrnt-ztdvl8/edit?pli=1
