Set in New York City at the start of the 20th century, Newsies focuses on Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When newspaper publishers raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to go on strike.
Newsies is based on a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.
