This smash hit Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film, is inspired by the New York newsboys’ strike of 1899. When publishing giants Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the expense of the delivery boys, Jack Kelly and friends, all teenage “newsies,” must fight for what’s right. Filled with high-energy action and dance numbers, this musical comedy drama is fun for the whole family.
