saw somebody else post their newsies stuff….here’s everything i’ve gotten from the show so far. the top photo is everything but the bottom two are break-downs of the top one.
Here’s a summary:
3 Signed Playbills- each from a different performance
Letters (or notes) from Andy Richardson, Ben Fankhauser, and Kyle Coffman
20 Signed Trading Cards (Jeremy Jordan, Andrew Keenan-Bolger 3x, Ben Fankhauser 2x, Kara Lindsay, Matthew Schechter, Lewis Grosso, Garett Hawe, Ryan Steele, Ryan Breslin, Brendon Stimson, Andy Richardson, Thayne Jasperson, Aaron Albano, Jess LeProtto, Evan Kasprzak, Kyle Coffman, Alex Wong)
11 Unsigned Trading Cards (Michael Fatica, Jack Scott, Tommy Bracco 2x, Mike Faist, Ephraim Sykes, Lewis Grosso, Jeremy Jordan, Alex Wong, Ryan Steele, Brendon Stimson)
- I also have a Newsies cap, a giant poster of Jeremy Jordan as Jack Kelly, and a dark green messenger bag from Opening Night.
so i thought since i’ve received quite a few trading cards back from the cast and a lot of people have been asking about them i would show you guys the process of how i went about writing to each of them.
i made custom newsies stationary and personalized each piece for each individual newsie. i also wrote a nice sized note to each of them, with every note slightly different from each other. let me tell you, it’s hard to write 14 personalized individual letters to people but i found one or two things i really like about each person or their character and tried to write about that.
so far i’ve received 8 cards back, making a total of 14 cards (i already had them from Kara Lindsay, Garrett Hawe, Matthew Schechter, Alex Wong, and two from Andrew Keenan-Bolger). i also received two sweet notes from Andy Richardson and Ben Fankhauser. Just waiting on a few more. And I’m probably going to write two more letters. One to Michael Fatica and one to Jack Scott.
won the lotto at newsies today. 3rd time seeing it (including paper mill). this time though, they had the trading cards and so i got some with my program purchase - - plus i knew some Twitter ‘passwords of the day’…..ryan steele and brendon stimson didn’t come out so i couldn’t get their cards signed
and yes i’m selfish and had to get another crutchie card because i love andrew keenan-bolger and mailing him an entire box of flaming hot cheetos and getting one card back just wasn’t enough =P =D
