Adapted from Kenny Ortega's beloved film of the same name, Newsies is a musical theater production by Disney on Broadway that brings the real-life story of the newsboy strike of 1899 to the stage. With music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, the show follows the story of a familiar cast of young underdogs who take on the biggest names in publishing. An inspiring tale that still hold's weight in modern times, Newsies debuted at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey in 2011 before finding a home on both Broadway and London's West End in 2012.
