Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, Newsies is the rousing tale of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dream of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. When up against corrupt publishing titans, they rally together to strike for whatâ€™s right. High-energy with non-stop thrills, the stage version introduces eight brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including Watch What Happens, Seize the Day, King of New York and Santa Fe. Youâ€™ll be rooting from your seats in this David & Goliath musical triumph!
