Newsies the musical
Adapted from the cult-classic Disney film starring Christian Bale, Bill Pullman and Robert Duval, Newsies was inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899 and tells the story of Jack Kelly in turn of the century New York City. Jack is a personable newsboy and the defacto leader of a rough and tumble gang of teenage ‘newsies’ who long for better lives, lives off the streets.
When publishing moguls Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst decide to raise the price of distribution and directly impact the money the newsies will take home, Jack and his crew find a cause they’re willing to fight for. Rallying newsies across New York City, the boys organise a strike to protect their scant livelihoods and fight for what’s right.
The show met rave reviews on Broadway and was nominated for seven Tony Awards the stage adaptation features new songs by the original team as well as many of the most loved songs from the original film including ‘Carrying the Banner,’ ‘Seize the Day,’ ‘King of New York,’ and ‘Sante Fe’. The show makes its London debut in a new production in the round
