Newsies is based on the real-life newsboy strike of 1899 in New York City. According to press notes, the premise is described as a, “rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘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 has music and dancing lead by some of the top names in show business. The 8-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, composes the featured score in the musical. The director of this film is the choreographer from movies such as Dirty Dancing and High School Musical, Kenny Ortega.

This production will bring back a great deal of nostalgia for the 80s and early 90s babies who grew up on this great film, so to see it come to life will be magical even to 20 and 30 year olds. However, this is a musical that all ages will love as it brings together exquisite dance and singing performances with a great underlying, inspiring story.

Previews for this limited time show begin March 15th in the Nederlander Theatre. Opening Night is March 29th and the show’s run will end June 10. Due to this limited time offer it is recommended to get tickets very early before they sell out!
