Newsies on Broadway – Now More Than Ever It's Time to Seize the Day
Filmed live on stage, this high-energy, not-to-be-missed show features stars of the original, Tony Award®-winning Broadway production joined by those of the North American tour. Set in New York City at the turn of the last century and based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, leader of a ragged band of teenage “newsies” who dream only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when two publishing titans raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for.
