  • And It's Time for 'Newsies'

    Finally, we can talk about it... (And I'm sure we will in this space for some time to come.)

    Ben has been cast in the first national tour of Disney's Tony Award-winning musical, "Newsies." Rehearsals started this week in New York, and will continue in Manhattan throughout the month of September before the show hits the road.

    We could not be happier or more proud of Ben, who identified "Newsies" as the next major show he wanted to do before leaving "Billy Elliot." He has spent the last 15 months working, training, dancing, and singing (much to the chagrin of his sister, Katharine) in Virginia to get ready.

    From two open calls, to two days of callbacks in late April, it has been an ongoing part of his life (and ours) for many many months. And now it is a reality.

    Congrats, son!
