#281084 Newsies Coming To London?!?

Posted Titan on 17 October 2013 - 02:53 PM

Yes but it isnt a cash cow in the UK, in fact its almost unknown.  Starting somewhere with a strong reputation, and a history of quality productions that have transferred (such as Chichester) could help set up a transfer nicely

So they basically transferred the Broadway-Version. Let Go is so much better than Ball of Wax... I saw the show on Broadway first so I only knew Life Turns On A Dime and I Cant Breathe from the CD by then.

Please, please, please say they have the flight over New York with the Subway Ghost Melody as the new Overture as it was in New York. I absolutely loved the flight and missed it dearly when I saw the show in London.

Yes, basically the broadway show with a little trimmed around the edges (automated screen blocks, illusions - but largely all there!).
The "flight" is there, you'll be happy to hear! Including the music you referenced. Also the train scenes from Broadway are here too, which were better than London (length- and width-ways trains, switching between the views) and also litter that flies around too (as in Broadway). They don't do the hand through cup illusion, and unfortunately in today's performance "Sam" knocked it by mistake, but covered it very well!
It had more projections & videos than London, I think these were mostly Broadway additions. The "shadows" of the dancers on the projections was so much better on the tour, really echoing & enhancing the actual dancers.
Stunning show.

Ha, we'll be returning to London on May 28! I want to ask you what else you're seeing but don't want to go off-topic here so will just say that I hope you have a great time :)
