Tickets are now on sale for the new Disney musical Newsies, starring Jeremy Jordan as rebel newsboy Jack Kelly. Previews begin March 15 at the Nederlander Theatre, with an official opening night set for March 29. The musical will play a limited engagement until June 10.
Based on the 1992 film of the same name, Newsies features the film's original music as well as additional songs by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Jack Feldman, and a book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. Inspired by the real events of the Newsboy Strike of 1899, Newsies follows a young New York City newsboy (Jordan) who leads a group of orphans in a protest against Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers.
Joining Jordan are co-stars John Dossett (Joseph Pulitzer), Kara Lindsay (Katherine Plumber), Capathia Jenkins (Medda), Ben Fankhauser (Davey), Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Crutchie) and Lewis Grosso and Matthew Schechter (alternating in the role of Les).
