"There’s a kid in the middle of nowhere
Sitting and living for Tony performances. 
Singing and flipping along with the Pippins and Wickeds and Kinkys 
Matildas and Mormonses. 
So we might reassure that kid
And do something to spur that kid. 
‘Cause I promise you
All of us up here tonight,
We were that kid.”

This gives me lots and lots of hope. Thank you Neil Patrick Harris!

These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.

;________________;

Isador & Ida Straus
The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.
When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.
A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

Oh my goat. So, just now, I was scrolling through Tumblr, reminiscing about Newsies. And I went to go brush my teeth humming ‘Once and for All’ and I felt this REALLY SHARP PAIN IN MY HEART!! It was right out of nowhere. I literally had to call my brother to check my pulse because I was so shocked. It was all fine, but I realized something. My heart broke.
Singing Newsies.
Coming off Broadway on August 24.
