I'm the King of New York!

Welcome to "Broadway Bound!" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict Broadway show titles!

We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, September 23 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

This summer my husband and I took a wonderful anniversary trip to New England. One of the highlights was seeing "NEWSIES." That has always been one of my favorite Disney movies and I was thrilled to be able to see the original Broadway cast, and meet most of them after the show!
So, it was a no brainer for what show I would choose for today's hop! NEWSIES! 
Newsies is a musical based on the New York City newsboys strike of 1899. The movie came out in 1992 and starred a young Christian Bale (and yes, he sings and dances!), Bill Pullman and Robert Duvall. The Broadway musical just opened in March of 2012.
My Paper Boy is colored in with Copic markers. The Skyline (0433) is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

It was a great day in the sunshine seeing that show. We sat on Row F, right in the center. When they started their first jaw-dropping dance, I just almost burst out crying from sheer joy of the perfection -- and sitting so close made it all that much better!
My favorite song of the show was "I'm the King of New York." It was my favorite in the movie too. Take a look at some of the highlights:
