Newsies

Bob Hein 667 views


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, forcing the powerful papers of Hearst and Pulitzer to review their policies, 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 has gone on to 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.
