I actually quite liked the latest movie version that was done (nearly 10 years ago now!) so I'm kinda...indifferent about this at the moment. Though I can understand choosing it for this particular type of production.

Christopher Gattelli put those guys through it with his choreography for Newsies. All of them are so talented. I like seeing Ephraim and Thayne in the show since they were two of my favorite OBC Newsies. Exciting to see another one join!

He played the role at the Los Angeles Actor's Fund performance and was absolutely fantastic. It's great that he will be playing the role again (though I still have to scratch my head at Disaster! getting a Broadway run).

I seem to recall people really liking it a the La Jolla Playhouse and at Asolo Repertory Theatre but it didn't last very long when it transferred (not great reviews and less than stellar attendance).
