What a magical night we had at Newsies! For Christmas, all the siblings pooled our gift money together and got my parents plane tickets to fly to Denver, and Newsies tickets to come see it with the Grandkids. I grew up being a Newsies junkie, and when it hit broadway a few years ago I bought the soundtrack right away. We listen to it all the time and Halle knows every word and every voice inflection. She and I were lucky enough to see it in New York when we spent the summer and we couldn’t wait for the boys to come with us.
We began the evening at Crepes and Crepes. The kids all chose crepes filled with nutella, strawberries, and various kinds of ice cream for dinner. It certainly wasn’t the most healthy dinner but it might be the most delicious one they’ve ever had. Despite all our best efforts and makeshift napkin bibs Blake ended up covered in Nutella from head to toe.
We arrived at the Theater just in time to snap a few pics and scurry to our seats. Blake was absolutely riveted during the first few songs. His eyes were wide and he didn’t move a muscle. It took Josh a little longer to settle in. In the first 20 min he asked me if it was almost over. But he got over his fidgets and especially enjoyed the 2nd act. Halle had brought some $ for souvenirs and got a darling charm bracelet. Blake had no money, but really wanted this Newsboy hat. Luckily I didn’t see him try it on, or I would have caved. He looks so cute! Rusty snapped the pic.
We absolutely loved the show. It was so much fun. The singing was beautiful and the dancing was absolutely incredible. I know this night will go down in Banks/Cornell family history!
