Set in New York City at the turn of the century, "Newsies: The Broadway Musical" is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.
Filmed live at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, the event stars a blend of the Broadway and North American Tour cast. The critically acclaimed cinematic debut of "Newsies: The Broadway Musical" sees the return of Tony Award-nominated Jeremy Jordan in the lead role of Jack Kelly. It also stars original Broadway cast members Kara Lindsay “Katherine,” Ben Fankhauser “Davey” and Andrew Keenan-Bolger “Crutchie,” with North American Tour stars Steve Blanchard “Joseph Pulitzer” and Aisha de Haas as “Medda Larkin.”
