Newsies The Musical
In a spectacular, high-energy performance, this Tony Award-winning musical tells the incredible story of the newsboys’ struggle in turn-of-the-century New York City. Based on the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899, the story follows Jack, a newspaper delivery boy and homeless orphan who dreams of leaving New York for Santa Fe.
As he tries to stay out of trouble, Jack meets Katherine, a young reporter with dreams of her own. His plans are disrupted when newspaper baron Joseph Pulitzer drives up newspaper prices, cutting the boys’ already meager incomes in an effort to drive his own profits. Jack and his fellow newsies strike. Police and organized strikebreakers confront the boys. Violence ensues. The boys flee and Jack’s friend Crutchie is taken into custody. Katherine captures the event in an article that makes the front page.
In an effort to save his friend and end the trouble, Jack confronts Pulitzer, only to discover Katherine is Pulitzer’s daughter. Angry and distraught, the boys print their own paper, telling of their plight. They send it to Governor Theodore Roosevelt, who comes to New York to resolve the dispute. The confrontation between Pulitzer and the boys reaches a critical point as Jack and Katherine must decide where their loyalties lie.
