Spirit of Crutchie

Besides Jack Kelly, my other main favorite Newsie is Crutchie.

Spoilers ahead:

Crutchie is the most vulnerable of all the Newsies. He after all has to walk around with the aid of a crutch because he has a bum leg. But his relationship to Jack so special. The two of them are best friends and sleep together. Jack is so protective of Crutchie and that is special to watch. Crutchie has such a wonderful spirit and you see lot of his optimism through the show. For the strike he creates a sign to put on his crutch so he strongly believes in the cause. Even when he is arrested and sent to the Refuge, he still has a lot of hope. You can clearly see that through his song, Letter From the Refuge. That song shows that he still believes in the cause despite his situation. He still wants the boys to look after each other. When I saw Newsies August 2016, the Newsies I fell in love with the most were Jack and Crutchie

    1. I love his friendship with Jack as well. It is their relationship that made me become emotionally attached to the show. Right at the beginning I saw their special friendship- I fell in love the two and felt emotionally connected to the musical
