That’s right – a night out with the Newsies was just what was needed this week. As part of the Broadway Series at Playhouse Square, Newsies came to town and did not disappoint. I can honestly say that this was one of my favorite musicals that I’ve seen. From the singing to the dancing to the story, the musical had everyone in the audience engaged and excited to see what was next.
When Playhouse Square invited me, I knew that Jess and I would have the perfect, much-needed girls night out. With drinks and small bites at Bin 216 before the media event, we were able to catch up and take in the sights of the Playhouse Square district. As much as I hate how dark it gets at 5pm this time of the year, it does offer the opportunity to really see that gorgeous chandelier lit up!
The show is based on true events and tells the story of Newsies – yes, news boys – who fought back and stood up for their rights…and the rights of others. You wouldn’t expect it, but the young men become heroes during the show and of course, there’s a love story weaved in. And along the way, the Newsies discover who they are and learn to stay true to their selves…and to each other.
And the good news – there are still some limited tickets to catch the show! Playhouse Square is offering a #SeizeSingleSeats promotion which gets you into the show and provide you with a few extra goodies!
So don’t wait – head over today, grab your Newsies hat and be prepared for another fantastic show at Playhouse Square!
