Stop the Press: 'Newsies' is closing on Broadway

By Kaitlyn Clay,

The hit Disney Broadway show 'Newsies' is closing soon.

USA Today tells us that it was announced on Sunday that the musical will play its final, and 1,005th, show on August 24. It will be sad to see this one go from Broadway because after all the awards it has won it is clear it is nothing but a hit show.

The Associated Press tells us that fans might be a little relieved to know the show will be doing a North American tour that includes stops in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Miami, and Washington, D.C. Even though there is nothing like seeing a Broadway show in the heart of New York City, at least fans will be able to still see this hit show somewhere.

It will be interesting to see what Broadway has up its sleeves to replace 'Newsies.' It will have to be something that will capture our attention like the headlines from 'Newsies' did for us.
