EP 030: Newsies (1992)

DISLI Newsies

Darcy Kendall, musician and songwriter, waxes poetic about the first musical she ever saw, Disney's 1992 flop-turned-cult-hit-turned-Broadway-musical "Newsies!" This musical concerning the real 1899 newsboy strike takes center stage as Darcy joins Marshall and Laura in discussing the papes trade, child labor laws, invisible female characters, and Chrisitan Bale's singing voice in this week's episode of "Do I Still Love It?"

Darcy Kendall is a musician, songwriter, and comedian living in Los Angeles. She can be seen regularly tickling the ivories and belting out tunes at the Second City in Hollywood; check her out Fridays performing with "Hispanic Attack" and "Live Rude Girls."
