Owner description: Disney's NEWSIES, the breakout new American musical, is now on Broadway in New York City! The musical, based on the beloved 1992 Disney movie musical of the same name, features a score by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony® Award winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy). NEWSIES is directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun (Big River revival) and choreographed by Tony nominee Christopher Gattelli (South Pacific revival). Set in New York City at the turn of the century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teen aged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. NEWSIES is inspired by the real life "Newsboy Strike of 1899," when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of real life orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers. The original Disney film has morphed into a cult phenomenon with a generation of avid fans discovering the movie on VHS and DVD. The stage version introduces several brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including ‘Carrying the Banner, ‘Seize the Day,’ ‘King of New York’ and ‘Santa Fe.’

I've seen several musicals in Us and in particular in Broadway theatres. This is one of The most well performed I've ever seen: Great music, exhilarating cast, powerful and interesting choreography. The theme is suitable for an audience of all ages. If you love dancing you' ll see a high quality of technique and you'll appreciate The wonderful Lines and steps of elevation.
The best way to spend my last holiday days in Ny.
Don't miss Newsies!

Loved the original Disney movie. Didn’t think the musical could be as great as I expected it to be but it was. The dancing, costumes, acting, vocals etc. Everything was done perfectly. Lots of energy and entertaining the whole way though. Perfect for couples, family or a group of friends! A must see, don’t miss out! Will defiantly see it again if they tour!

Great dancing and ensemble singing make this show enjoyable from start to finish. There is also not a bad seat in the house.
