They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines. Direct from Broadway comes Newsies, the smash-hit, crowd-pleasing new musical from Disney. Winner of the 2012 Tony Awards® for Best Score and Best Choreography, Disney’s Newsies has audiences and critics alike calling it “A musical worth singing about!” (The New York Times). Filled with one heart-pounding number after another, it’s a high-energy explosion of song and dance you just don’t want to miss. Based on true events, Disney’s Newsies tells the captivating story of a band of underdogs who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to the most powerful men in New York. It’s a rousing tale about fighting for what’s right…and staying true to who you are.
Disney’s Newsies was brought to the stage by an award-winning creative team. It features a score by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and Jack Feldman (The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride); and a book by Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles); with choreography by Christopher Gattelli (South Pacific); and direction by Jeff Calhoun (Big River). Now is the time to seize the day with Newsies, playing November 17 – 29, 2015 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
