Newsies is the blazing, high-kicking true story of New York's newsboys who made their living hawking papers, but in the face of rising prices and poor wages, started to make the headlines themselves! Based on Disney's 1992 film, which is in turn based on the newsboys strike of 1899 that brought the city to a standstill, this storming, energetic, adaptation is now heading out on tour.
After making its Broadway debut in 2012, the show, with book by Harvey Fierstien and Music by Alan Menken, Newsies went onto win 2 Tonys, including Best Score and Choreography, which was lavishly praised in the first rash of reviews, with the cartwheeling, flipping and pirouetting dance numbers declared 'Electrifying' by Vogue.
With classic Broadway flair, unforgettable songs (see 'Seize the Day' and 'King of New York') and a defiant tale of feisty kids making a difference, Newsies is a definite hit and a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
Orphaned and homeless, New York's newsboys live, urchin like, day by day, dreaming of a better life. In the meantime, the popular and charismatic Jack and friends have got more than just dodging juvenile detention centre on his mind. The newspaper editors are inflating their prices, meaning the newsies can't afford to sell them. Now is the time to pull together, create strength in numbers and protest! Join Jack on the adventure of his life as he finds the courage and the hope to change his destiny!
This is lyricist Jack Feldman's first Broadway show, previously he wrote the lyrics for Barry Manilow's hit Cococabana
