Newsies: The Bradway Musical is returning to movie theaters. The filmed version will be shown in select theaters on August 5 and 9. This presentation stars Jeremy Jordan, reprising his Tony Award-Nominated performance as “Jack Kelly.”
Those joining Jordan from the original Broadway cast include: 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.” Additional cast from the Broadway and North American Tour ensemble will also return. The three-day event was captured live at The Pantages Theatre in Hollywood in September 2016.
Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies 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.
