For Crutchie’s sake, tell me it’s TRUE! It is!
Newsies, which ran in earlier this year at the Paper Mill Playhouse, is moving to Broadway for a strictly limited 101 performance run. The show will play its first Broadway preview on March 15th prior to its March 29th opening night; the final performance is scheduled for June 10th. This comes a small change in plans (though hardly a surprising one) as this show was original planned as a way of creating a show to license to regional, professional, and community productions. No casting has been announced for the $5 million dollar production that will call the Nederlander Theater on W. 41st its home, but the assumption is that they will have to replace Jeremy Jordan as Jack Kelly due to his currently starring in Bonnie & Clyde on Broadway.
