Gifting Newsies Musical Tickets
Last Christmas I gifted Jacob tickets to see one of our favorite musicals- Newsies! At the time I was very pregnant, I had no idea what our budget would look like eight months into having a child (I thought we may be doing free dates only), and I knew it may be a stretch to go on a date for that long away from a nursing baby. Luckily, I decided then and there no matter where we were in life, this date would be good for us.
Dinner Before the Play
I’d also like to mention I purposefully found the item in my closet that was the least nursing-friendly item I own and I intentionally wore it. It was fantastic!
And then we headed out to fulfill childhood dreams of seeing the Broadway version of Disney Newsies. I actually didn’t see the movie until a year ago, but still grew up listening to the songs. I guess I felt like I owed it to my former teen self, I cheated her out of so many teen heart-throbs that she never knew existed. She deserved to go see it live and wonder how much more exciting Batman with Christian Bale may have seemed when it was first announced. My guess? Pretty excited.
How close is the Newsies Musical to the Disney newsies movie?
It was almost identical! Obviously, different actors will add their own spin to each play. But we enjoyed the same music, the same songs, and the same plot. Every moment of the popular movie was recreated on the stage. I guess when it’s really not broken, you don’t fix it!
Newsies Musical Cast
The cast was phenomenal! And I’m just so grateful that pregnant Camille had the foresight to think so far ahead and plan this date night! She knew that an upscale date that would push how long we could stay out was just the thing we would need after eight months of parenthood!
