Filmed live on stage, this unmissable, Tony Award® - winning Broadway show from the producers of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King. Jeremy Jordan (Supergirl, The Last Five Years) stars in this high-energy explosion of song and dance set in 1890’s New York City. Based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenage ‘newsies’, who only dream of a better life far from the hardsip of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and Willian Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies from across the city to strike and take a stand for what’s right.
