thank you fansies.

thank you for making newsies what it is today.

let’s never forget that we turned a movie about a few 1899 new york newspaper boys, into the global sensation that it is today.

-we convinced disney to turn a box office failure into a regional stage production. making it the most requested stage adaptation of its time.

-we again convinced them to take that small regional show to broadway for a limited run of 101 performances in 12 weeks.

-we showed them that the run deserved to be extended after making it the fastest disney theatrical production to turn a profit – $5 million in just 7 months. ultimately leading to an open ended run.

-with the announcement that the broadway run would come to a close after 1,005 performances in 2 ½ years, we convinced disney to send the production on the road for their first national tour.

-the tour was expected to run for 43 weeks, traveling to 25 cities. but again we showed disney that those newsboys deserved more, and the tour was brought to 65 cities across the US and Canada, performing a total 784 shows over 2 years.

-again, upon the announcement of the tour conclusion, we begged for more, and again disney heard our voice. they responded the announcement of a live capture recording of the show.

-with the original three day theatrical release, the show grossed a total of $3.5 million, making it the second highest grossing theatrical release. following that success, disney announced a fourth encore screening.

-after much support, disney has officially announced a digital release of the live capture for may 23rd!


-thank you newsies for giving us something to believe in, and thank you fansies for carrying the banner and letting this legacy live on once and for all!

sincerely,

a fansie <3
