is yet another high-flying Broadway hit from Disney Theatrical Productions. Since its March 2012 Broadway opening, Newsies
has, to date, set and broken five Nederlander Theatre house records. The show received 23 major theatrical nominations in 2012 – including eight Tony Award nods – and won Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Score and Choreography. Best Original Score Tonys went to Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and to Christopher Gattelli for Best Choreography.

Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies
is the tale of Jack Kelly, a newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams of a better life.

Young reporter Katherine Plumber gets a hold of the story, the strike spreads and the newsboys take their fight all the way to the top. It's hard not to stand up and cheer for that era's hardscrabble 99 percent.
