To everybody asking if we’ll get Newsies Live on DVD/digital release....
Listen, us fansies are a damn mighty group.
We took a movie that flopped at the box office, and badgered Disney until they gave us a stage version at Paper Mill.
We took a show that was never supposed to hit Broadway, and convinced Disney to put it on Broadway as a limited run.
We took a show that was supposed to have a limited run and got it to run over 1,000 performances, and a tour.
And then with only weeks left to go before the end of the tour, our love for this beautiful, life-changing show convinced the folks at Disney Theatricals to bring together the casts of the Broadway and tour productions together for a one night only show that was beautifully filmed and put together for an ultimate Newsies experience, and then put it in movie theaters.
We did that, guys. Our deep love for our dancing paper boys DID ALL THAT.
So I have a feeling that if we badger the folks at Disney Theatricals enough, they will most definitely distribute the pro-shot digitally or on DVD in some form.
So get cracking, folks. FANSIES UNITED!!!!
