The double Tony award-winning smash-hit of Newsies will debut in the UK for a limited run from 28th November 2022. In an innovative and immersive brand-new ‘in the round’ production, Newsies is based on the book by Harvey Fierstein, with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman.
Based on a true story, Newsies is set in New York City at the turn of the 19th Century. A rousing tale of ragged band of teenage newspaper sellers who dream of a better life, Newsies follows the story young newsboys from across the city come together and rise up against the exploitation of wealthy publishing tycoons, after newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer hikes up the prices for his papers charged to the newsies. A tale based on the fight for justice using the only power they have - solidarity.
Debuting at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in November 2022, theatregoers will be thrust right inside the action as the newsies dance, sing, jump and fly around the streets of a booming 19th century New York City.
