A day late with my Theater Thursday post, however, better late than never. The popular Disney musical Newsies has managed to make it’s way onto Broadway. Following Jack Kelly and his team of newspaper delivery boys as they start a strike. Demanding they get what they deserve from their boss for doing their job they manage to grab the attention of local journalists. Even though their voice is not heard for some time, they manage to get the attention of Joseph Pulitzer and, then New York governor, Theodore Roosevelt to their campaign. However, Jack is met with much opposition as his plans start to unravel he makes it clear he is not going to give up easily.
