news! Disney's acclaimed Broadway musical will be leaving its NYC home for a national tour this fall. The turn-of-the-century play has enjoyed a wildly successful run at Nederlander Theater, one that began in March over two years ago. While the Disney darling was originally intended for just a limited engagement, it has seen over 1 million theatre-goers, raked in $100 million-plus sales, and will now be closing its doors as of August 24, 2014. While the movie-musical that inspired the Broadway hit was a total flop in theaters, Newsies has amassed an incredible cult following. The newsboys will launch a national tour starting this October in Philadelphia. The Tony Award-winning surprise smash will visit 25 cities in 43 weeks starting fall 2014. Take care to lock-in Newsies tickets ASAP--the musical has a devoted fanbase that's sure to rapidly snatch-up seats to every show!
Extra, Extra! Newsies is a fresh Broadway musical, adapted from the 1992 Disney movie of the same name. The show-stopping play accounts the inspiring true story of a rag-tag group of newspaper boys who must fight for justice in fast-paced New York City at the dawn of the century. Their extraordinary story culminates in the historic newsboy strike of 1899.
Dreamer Jack Kelly leads the underdog adolescents who stand up to the publishing giants, Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, who raised newspaper distribution prices to the dismay of the boys who deliver and sell them. With the help of a beautiful reporter, Katherine Plumber, the courageous newsboys tackle adversity while inspiring those around them to believe in themselves and men of even the most humble of origins. Newsies is cherished by audiences young and old alike, and is arguably the most feel-good family-fun musical Broadway has to offer.
Though a new production, the musical has already won Tony Awards for Best Score and Choreography, and will run through July 6 at what better venue than the Nederlander Theater on Broadway? Newsies was awarded the Top Critics’ Pick by New York Magazine, and has been hailed “the perfect musical for our times.” With unmatched choreography on Broadway today, this high-energy play is sure to win your heart.
