Lexus Broadway in Austin presented by Texas Performing Arts is hosting the national tour of Newsies at Bass Concert Hall on September 27 – October 2, 2016.
We are big fans of Disney Broadway Musicals yet we have never had the opportunity to see Newsies, so I was very happy to see that it was the season opener for the 2016/2017 Broadway in Austin season.
Newsies is coming to the Bass Concert Hall for seven performances, September 27 – October 2, 2016.
From the Press Release……
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.
NEWSIES is inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899,’ when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers.
