Disney's Return To The Great White Way

April 18, 1994. Anyone remember what happened on that date? Give up? That my friends was the day that Disney invaded the Great White Way and change the Broadway landscape forever. Since their first show Beauty and the Beast they have produced five more shows. Some were hits like Aida, Mary Poppins, and The Lion King both of which are both still playing to packed houses today.

Others like Tarzan and The Little Mermaid unfortunately failed to ignite the box office and closed without much fanfare. Now as Winter turns to Spring Disney is set to return to Broadway once again. Newsies which is based on the 1992 film is set to begin previews at the Nederlander Theatre on March 15 with opening night scheduled for March 29.

As of now it is a limited engagement thru June 10 however if reviews are good I expect it to extend. Now those of you who read my blogs know I am not the biggest Disney fan in the world. However I expect this show to do very well and be a big contender at this years Tony Awards. We shall see. Get your tickets to see Newsies on Broadway. Who knows? Disney just might have another hit on their hands Until next time theatre fans.
