  • Newsies Invade Baltimore

    “Newsies” invaded Baltimore this week, bringing Ben close to home and enabling relatives and friends to come see the show. Baltimore, like Philadelphia and Louisville, was a repeat stop from the Billy Elliot tour, and is the closest the show will be to our house until it comes to Washington, D.C., next June.

    It was a crazy week. My mom came up from Texas, seeing her grandson perform not once, but twice. The first time was with Kate, Nicholas, and his girlfriend, Katherine, in tow.

    On Saturday, the ASCA staff saw the show as part of their annual Christmas party, and we bumped into some old dance friends afterward.  After several families from Metropolitan School of the Arts saw the Sunday matinee, a group of 100 MSA students, teachers, and parents went to the final performance that evening.

    By all accounts, everyone had a great time. And it was nice to have Ben at home for a couple of days afterward. 

    Next stop: Chicago for four weeks starting on Wednesday, Dec. 10.
