No I did not see this live, but I came home and was told to watch it via Amazon. Man was this a fun ride. The Disney musical adds some characters which really adds to the story. It also turns the story from being about just the Newsies, to a children's crusade in general. And the sparks were there between Jack Kelley (Jeremy Jordan) and Katherine (Kara Lindsay.) I was waiting for the love song, and it didn't disappoint. My son and his wife sang this a couple years ago in a Broadway Review. (They weren't yet engaged.) Music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman. This is a show my kids have loved since it appeared on television so many years ago. The girls have taken their turns dressing up as Newsies. I know Natalia, Ty and Miranda have seen a live performance in Seattle.
This is a great show and I have really enjoyed it. It leaves you feeling good.
