Last year's "Mary Poppins" set record attendance and won effusive praise. It was a show of rich, jewel tones, astounding magic and "anything can happen." How, on earth, could we follow that? "Newsies" was the perfect choice and stands in stark, artistic contrast. The show is a gritty, steely blue, black and gray toned story of determination and unbridled youth. It represents the underdog's universal dilemma with quintessential "David and Goliath" undertones. Two entirely different shows, yet both soaring with emotion, leaving audiences equally satisfied.
