Broward Across Miami Presented by Bank of America premiers Disney’s Broadway Smash Hit Musical, Newsies to the Downtown Miami Adrienne Arsht Center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House. Based on the 1992 musical film of the same name starring Christian Bale, Disney’s Newsies is the winner of the 2012 Tony Awards® for Best Score and Best Choreography that has become a cult phenomenon adapted for the stage.
The story is set in New York City in the early 1900s about a young teenage newsboy named Jack Kelly, who leads a group of ‘Newsies’ who seek a better life off of the streets selling papers. When the titan publisher decides to raise prices of papers at the expense of the Newsies because of declining sales, Jack and the Newsies unite to fight back with a cause for what they believe is right.
As they made headlines across the city and made their voices heard, all of New York City stood behind the Newsies in a fun-filled heart-pounding musical of songs and dances that exploded onto the stage with energy and a dynamism that captivated the original underdog story based on the true events of the Newsboy Strike of 1899. Newsies featured score after score produced by the creative group that originally brought us the songs from Beauty and Beast by Alan Menken, and the Lion King II: Simba’s Pride by Jack Feldman. The astonishing choreography by Christopher Gattelli brought dance after dance that brought the audience to its feet.
Disney’s Newsies is an inspiringly impressive performance by a superbly selected cast that moves you. It is a must-see Disney on-stage production that delivers an experience as its own movies.
