Broadway’s NEWSIES comes to the Big Screen by TheatreRat
Disney Theatrical Productions presents, NEWSIES: The Broadway Musical in its worldwide cinema debut around the U.S. by Fathom Events February 16, 18, and 22 only!
Jeremy Jordan reprises his Tony Award-nominated performance as “Jack Kelly.” Joining him from the original Broadway cast include: Kara Lindsay “Katherine,” Ben Fankhauser “Davey” and Andrew Keenan-Bolger “Crutchie,” with North American Tour stars Steve Blanchard “Joseph Pulitzer” and Aisha de Haas as “Medda Larkin.” The three-day event was captured live at The Pantages Theatre in Hollywood in September 2016.
Based on the 1992 film that was not a box office success but developed a loyal following, Disney Theatricals brought in Harvey Fierstein to work on the true story of the 1899 paperboy strike that pitted them against publishing titan Joseph Pulitzer. The stage production became an instant hit running for 1,005 performances on Broadway.
NEWSIES went on to win countless awards including two Tony Awards for Alan Menken and Jack Feldman’s “Best Score” and Christopher Gattelli’s stunning “Best Choreography” of 16 acrobatic, high flying paperboys.
