A to Z Musicals ~ ♬ “N” is for NEWSIES

n

The musical Newsies, a Disney production, is based on a 1992 musical film of the same name, which in turn was inspired by the real-life newsboys strike of 1899 in New York City. It opened on Broadway officially on March 29, 2012. The production cost about $5 million to stage, and Newsies recouped its initial investment within seven months, becoming the fastest of any Disney musical on Broadway to turn a profit. It won Tony Awards for Best Choreography and Best Original Score.

Here is a Newsies medley from the 2012 Tony Awards

What’s more ancient history; news boys, or newspapers themselves? I can’t image the 70 “newspaper boys” of today dancing like that????!!

I forgot about this one, Martha. Good choice.

Saw the movie. Enjoyed it alot! Never seen the actual Broadway production.

Just great Martha !!! I loved it ❤ I really need to get to a musical, I'm sure it would help my attitude immensely. The energy and the talent, well it just makes me 🙂 Another great letter…Go Hawks 😉

Newsies is such a wonderful musical with an inspiring true story with memorable songs, mind-blowing dance, and incredible characters. I love Newsies and it is meaningful. I first saw it in August.

I’ve always wanted to see this one, but never have . . .

I must have been under a rock as I have never heard of this musical. It’s news to me.

    Well, Denise, as you know all too well, we’re entering into some of the more difficult letters. And as much as I like the older classics, I wanted to mix it up with the musicals. So, no, no, to No, No, Nanette 😉 and yes to Newsies!

Pretty sure a young Christian Bale was in the film version
