Another Broadway hit has come to the Alamo City and I got to speak to a pair of its actors. It’s called Newsies, and here’s Steve Blanchard with a snapshot of its plot.
“It’s basically tracing the 1899 Newsboy strike. My character, Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst both colluded to reduce the Newsboy salary by raising their price. It’s the ultimate David VS Goliath; it’s pretty fun.”
During my interview, a shrill, baby-like sound broke through. Steve's wife Meredith Inglesby explained.
“This is Wren. She’s our little two year-old girl.”
