The Bell House (149 Seventh Street, Brooklyn)
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Secret Formula succumbs to demands and has Newsies Sing-Along!
That’s right, you asked for it and now you got it. Continuing our fondness for Disney musicals, though switching over to live action, we’re bringing you this 90’s movie musical that answered the oft asked question: Should we cast Bill Pullman in a singing role in a musical? The answer was no and we’ve been better off ever since for knowing.
Directed by heavy hitter Kenny Ortega (Hocus Pocus, High School Musicals 1-3, This is It and Dirty Dancing…the TV series?!) this movie is bound to be remade with Zac Efron.
So before that happens come see a pre-Batman/growly voice Christian Bale as Jack Kelly singing and dancing all about how unfair a nominal increase in newspaper costs are. I suggest we start doing the same about MTA fares as those hikes are much steeper than a 10 cent raise per 100 papers.
As always we’ve subtitled the songs so you can sing-along with the audience and pretend that you are, in fact, the King of New York. We’ll have lots of interactive Rocky Horror style fun throughout the show (it is a pretty cheesy musical after all) as well as themed drinks, trivia, costume contest and Newsies dance off to see who can actually pull off that high kick move without busting their ass.
So come on out to The Bell House and Sing-Along with us. Whats’a matta, you scared of Brooklyn?
