Disney Theatrical Presents Newsies in New York

There may be nothing better than watching a Disney production play out right before your eyes, and Disney Theatrical’s Newsies doesn’t disappoint. The play whisks you back to New York City, 1899 telling the classic tale of newsboys taking on the big bosses they work for.

While the chaps in breaches in caps dancing and singing jauntily are sure to please the kids and teenagers in the crowd, the lyrics and overall theme is sure to resonate with the adults in the crowd. The play is already wildly popular, much more so than the 1992 movie it’s based on, and comes at a particularly poignant moment in history, as Occupiers still sit in many streets and the fight against the management and the rich has never seemed more pressing.

The play has been adapted by Harvey Fierstein from the screenplay written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White while Jess Goldstein is responsible for those costumes that takes you back to another time. Starring in the play are John Dossett who plays Joseph Pulitzer, the publisher of the newspaper; Jeremy Jordan who plays Jack, the leader of the newsboy uprising; Kara Lindsay play Katherine, the helpful reporter; Ben Fankhauser as Davey; Andrew Kennan-Bolger as Crutchie; and Matthew J. Schechter and Lewis Grosso alternating in the part of Davey’s brother.

The show was set to run until in the theatre until June 10 but has been given a two-month extension due to the huge amount of advance sales its already generated, and raving audience responses.
