Newsies

The 1992 movie “Newsies” centered on the 1899 New York City newsboys strike.  But rather than taking an overly-dramatic tone, Disney’s offering was a full-fledged musical.  And it bombed at the box office.  But sometimes, box office numbers are deceiving.  This was the case for “Newsies”.  The movie went on to develop a cult following, with it’s easy-to-sing-along numbers winning over audiences one song at a time.  Twenty years later, “Newsies” hit Broadway and captured the most critical theater city in the world.  And now, the Tony Award winning show is onstage at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres and it’s wowing audiences once again!  Click here for tickets.
