Something Rotten! on Broadway Delivers Non- Stop Laughs

Something Rotten! on Broadway

I didn’t know much about Something Rotten prior to the watching the Broadway play and I actually preferred it that way because every moment was such a treat. The laughs are non-stop from beginning to end with subtle pop culture references throughout. You don’t need a lot of Shakespeare knowledge prior to the show to enjoy all of the references about him. The play has something for everyone with great dance numbers, fun songs, romance, jealousy, and lovable characters. Trust me when I say that you will love it!

Share Disney’s Little Mermaid with a New Generation on Broadway

Share Disney's Little Mermaid with a New Generation on Broadway

Disney’s animated version of The Little Mermaid came out when I was around 11 years old in 1989. I LOVED that movie when I was a kid, which made taking my 10 year old son to see the Broadway version of a classic a full circle moment.

Broadway in Cincinnati Presents CABARET May 10-22


I had no idea what to expect for my first time watching the Broadway play CABARET. All I can say is WOW!!!
The singing and music were fantastic! Many of the actors in the ensemble also played an instrument. The plot offered sweet moments between characters, drama, and a few moments that were racy and over the top. *CABARET contains adult themes and is for mature audiences only.The ending still has me a little floored. I’m really glad that I didn’t know anything about the show prior to watching it. (No spoilers here)

Reasons Why Teenagers Will Love Newsies on Broadway

Reasons Why Teenagers Will Love Newsies on Broadway

I found out that my teenage neighbor was a HUGE Newsies fan and I decided that it would be interesting to get her perspective on the Newsies Broadway Musical.

First of all, what is Newsies all about?

Newsies on Broadway

NEWSIES is inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899,’ when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers.  

The stage version introduces seven brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman,including a song written specifically for the tour called ‘Letter from the Refuge,’ while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including ‘Carrying the Banner, ‘Seize the Day,’ ‘King of New York’ and ‘Santa Fe.’

 Since the film’s 1992 theatrical release and subsequent DVD release, NEWSIES has grown into a cult phenomenon, and for years had been the single most requested title of all the Disney musical films not yet adapted for the stage.  (The film featured a screenplay by Bob Tzudiker & Noni White (Tarzan, 102 Dalmatians).

I asked Summer a few questions before and after attending the Broadway Musical.

Newsies on Broadway

Why did you want to see Newsies on Broadway?

Newsies is my favorite movie and I heard really good reviews on the play so I automatically wanted to go. I also love plays, so it also appealed to that interest.

What are the scenes you are looking forward to?

I’m looking forward to all of it. I am really excited to listen to “Seize the Day” since it’s my favorite song from the movie. Also, I can’t wait to see how they create one of the last scenes where all the kids and teens from New York meet in front of Polister’s building for the strike.

Newsies on Broadway

Do you have a favorite character from the movie? Who and why?

I have two.  Jack Kelly because he’s the more violent leader. The second is Davy. He’s the more brainy and less violent leader. I love their friendship. It balanced itself out. One is soft and brainy while the other is risky and an on the go thinker.

Newsies on Broadway

What did you like about the play?

My favorite thing was probably the dancing. I also liked how they added some songs to the show. I really liked the tap dancing scene and the music was amazing.

Newsies on Broadway

Would you recommend this Broadway play to other teenagers? Why?

I definitely would recommend it to other teenagers. It was an amazing play and it gave a look into the past when the Newsies strike was actually going on. I think others would very much enjoy watching all the fun dances and listening to the catchy songs.

Newsies on Broadway

What would you say to someone who’s only familiar with the movie?

Before this, I had only seen the movie and I didn’t know what to expect. I think that even though the movie and play had differences they were both good. There are definitely some surprises when watching the play, if you’ve only seen the movie.

Playing minecraft, watching Friends on Netflix and Modern Family. I also love puzzles and Soduko and stuff like that.

Make sure you love it and you have fun otherwise it’s a waste of time.

Motown Tour
A few years ago, my family visited the Hitsville U.S.A. Motown Museum in Detroit, Michigan. It was incredible to walk into the building that birthed a musical movement that is still cherished by multiple generations today. We stood in rooms that legendary artists recorded their smash hits in. After watching Motown the Musical, I want to revisit Hitsville U.S.A. even more because I have an even greater appreciation for what unfolded there.
