What will happen to all those cute little Newsies boys? I'm beside myself with worry!
Back to the brunch shift at Eataly, hon.
If they're Tom Judson/Gus Mattox: porn.
R3 marry me.
They either teach (something), they become personal trainers or they teach Pilates.
It must be a horrible experience to go from the lights of Bway to a classroom.
Depending on the show, R7, the lights of Broadway can sometimes go fuck themselves.
I don't get it - can someone explain?
To Hell's Kitchen, of course.
r9-----see "Logan's Run" the movie
A few of them recycle themselves in the industry and work as set designers, tailors etc. Others (quite a lot) work for as long as their looks allow them as bartenders, streepers or just plainly whoring themselves. Many search unashamedly for sugar daddies because what they lack is precisely financial stability.
In general once the ride is over that kind of job doesn't leave you with good prospects.
The work force always needs ditch diggers.
Harvey Evans is still working in his 70's. He started as a chorus boy.
So did Chris Walken.
So did Revolta.
There's always the dance department at the local community college in whatever town you came from...
Why not come back home to Iowa or Montana or Alabama as a "Broadway star" and live off that the rest of your life? Just forget about being gay...
Your brother's going to medical school and you're growing up to be a chorus boy.....NOTHING!!
In "Logan's Run", when people turn 30 they go to "Carousel" to be "renewed" before a cheering crowd...they think. But in reality they're just being killed off.
And Carousel was also a Broadway Musical.
This is why r3 wins for funniest DL reply in weeks.
[quote]Where do chorus boys go when they turn 30?
Aaron Albano actually IS 30 and STILL a newsie.
I'm pretty sure David Geffen has given them all his private number.
They become walkers for old ladies.
Or wait around for Kennedy Center tributes. Did you SEE those old queens in the Carol Channing documentary?
r12, please name ONE Broadway chorus boy who became a set designer!
John Lee Beatty
Broadway's busiest choreographers were mostly all brought into the business as chorus boys.....Rob Ashford, Sergio Trujillo, Chris Gattelli, Andy Blankenbeuhler.
I think Kathleen Marshall must be the only currently prominent choreographer who didn't start out as a chorus boy. Or even a chorus girl. But her brother did.
Kathleen Marshall was a chorus girl in a few tours (Mystery of Edwin Drood being one, which she got with help from Rob since he did it on Broadway).
