This weekend, Broadway says goodbye to two big, splashy, dance-filled musicals Bullets Over Broadway and Newsies. And while it will be hard not to hop over to the St. James or the Nederlander to pay a visit to our pals, these shows will be with us long after they are gone.Below BroadwayBox has your survival kit for when you get that Bullets/Newsies craving.

Underrated Song on the Cast Album, We Will Appreciate Later:
Newsies: "That’s Rich" may not be sung by a newsboy or by Katherine Plumber, but it's a real showstopper and should be recognized as one of the best songs in the Tony-winning score.
Bullets: Marin Mazzie's second song "I Ain’t Gonna Play No Second Fiddle" is pretty insane. Expect it at piano bars and senior recitals for years to come.
