Newsies Tickets

  • About Newsies

    Newsies tickets are available for three matinee performances each week. These matinee tickets tend to sell out faster, so plan ahead for these earlier shows. Newsies curtain times vary depending on the day of the week, so be sure to check your tickets for both matinee and evening performance times.

    Newsies 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. Filling the Nederlander Theatre with dazzling dancing, catchy songs and multiple underdogs to root for, Newsies has emerged as one of the top shows on Broadway.

    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 ‘newsies,’ who dreams of a better life. 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.

    Inspired by the 1992 Disney film, an underground hit starring Robert Duvall and an 18-year-old Christian Bale, Newsies chronicles the real-life New York City newsboys' strike of 1899 that led to nationwide changes in child labor laws. Disney produced the original stage version of Newsies at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey, for a couple of months in 2011. After the entire run of the critically acclaimed show sold out, Disney decided to take Newsies to Broadway.

    The theatrical adaptation of Newsies stays faithful to much-loved elements of the film, while smartly adapting the score for stage and working from a new script penned by the great Harvey Fierstein. In today's charged political climate, Newsies seems particularly relevant: When publishing tycoon Joseph Pulitzer decides to raise the price of distribution, the newsboys join together and strike, demanding fair wages for all. 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.

  • The 1992 Newsies movie was the first film directed by famed choreographer Kenny Ortega, the man who would go on to oversee the High School Musical franchise. With Christopher Gattelli’s Ortega-influenced choreography and Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken’s music, Newsies the musical appeals to everyone from tween Disney Channel fanatics (or former tween fanatics) to anyone who has been charmed by such classics as Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and Mary Poppins.

    Good for kids?
    Newsies sticks to its Disney roots and avoids anything scandalous. The show is recommended for children six years of age and up.
