It’s a fine life – even finer now that the 1992 classic musical Newsies is being made into a Broadway musical. The film stars Christian Bale as a newspaper delivery boy fighting back against an increase in distribution rates. Good times, especially as he belts out off-key showstoppers like “Santa Fe.” I especially love the big dance scene in “Seize the Day,” which was my Music Monday not too long ago.
Check out a clip from the production below, and join me in asking – what took you so long, Disney?
What do you think? Will you go see it (with me!) when it comes to Broadway?

PS: On a related note, can we get Hollywood to stop re-making awesome musical movies and move toward a version of Fiddler on the Roof that I can watch in one sitting? Thanks.

OK! I’ll go with you!
Yay! I’ll have the NYC branch of our family keep her eyes open for announcements of a Broadway opening!
