So it took me a while but I finally figured out the part in Newsies Live that made me cry the most!
That one moment in ‘Seize the Day’ where Jack is singing with Davey and they get to the line 'Then say to the others, who did not follow through, You’re still our brothers and we will fight for you.’
I mean, just that fact that Jack looks at Crutchie for so long, arm on shoulder, trying to make 100% sure that Crutchie gets what he’s saying.
But it got more sad and upsetting and just ugh for me when I realised that yeah…yeah. Crutchie couldn’t follow through as he was at the refuge, but Davey convinced Jack to fight for him.
The lines a premonition.
I’ve only recently realised this and I’m just feeling all sorts of emotions. Ahh.
