Disney's 'Newsies' Is Broadway Bound
Get ready for the stage adaptation of Disney’s Newsies, the 1992 film musical about a newsboy strike which starred Christian Bale!
“Popular demand had prompted Disney to write and produce a stage musical of the movie simply so it could be licensed to amateur productions (it’s the Mouse House’s most requested property),” EW reports, adding that original songwriters Alan Menken and Jack Feldman were recruited to improve the tunes.
The show will have a limited run at NYC’s Nederlander Theater next year, with previews beginning March 15 and its official opening night slated for March 29.
