The estimated U.S. consumptiion of marijuana is around 40 tons a day (yes, 40 tons a day). This seizure isn’t even a half-day’s supply. It sounds good, but it’s totally meaningless, just like the rest of the “war on drugs.”
The Times has some substantial insider evidence that Newsies could be hopping the river and coming to Broadway.
Executives from the Nederlander Organization and Jujamcyn Theaters, two of Broadway’s major chains, have reached out to Disney to talk about opening “Newsies” in one of their houses, according to the people familiar with the talks, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to divulge private business discussions.
Disney executives appear open to the idea of a Broadway run, these people said, but are at this point still planning to release the title for licensing as originally planned. A spokesman for Disney Theatricals declined to comment on Thursday about the overtures from the theater owners.
It is not clear if the star of “Newsies,” Jeremy Jordan, would be part of a Broadway production. He is committed to the upcoming Broadway musical “Bonnie & Clyde,” which is set to open this year.
The McChurger: It's Easy and Cheap! What you do is drive to your favorite local McDonald's, purchase a Double Cheeseburger and a McChicken. Next, unwrap both sandwiches. Now, open the Double Cheeseburger so that you have a bottom bun with meat on the left and a top bun with meat on the right. Place the entire McChicken on top of the meat/bottom bun, next place the meat/top bun on top of the McChicken. Now lightly press down on the sandwich to make it more compact. Enjoy! Google it. It's REAL.
