Reviews of Newsies

Winner of two 2012 Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Choreography, Newsies is a high-energy explosion of song and dance. Catchy melodies by eight-time Oscar-winner Alan Menken and inspiring lyrics by Jack Feldman support an engaging book by Tony Award-winning playwright Harvey Fierstein. The show is loosely based on the real-life New York City Newsboys Strike of 1899 and is an inspiring story of earnest young underdogs who work together to take on the most powerful men in New York. The show’s optimism and physicality have made it a hit with audiences nationwide.

Gotta admit...I was expecting something more extravagant from the young dancing cast. I'd been raving to my friend about how the shows put on by a heavily-dance show tend to be bigger and different from a creativity angle. Loved the AGONY with the...continued

What a great show. I never liked the movie, but the musical was all you could want from a Disney branded production. Cheesey dialogue, feel good ending, and lots and LOTS of exceptional dancing! I'd see this production again. I sat in literally...continued

Great staging. Good cast. Nice physical venue. Audience sucked.

Loosely based, VERY loosely based, on the 1899 News Boys strike in New York City, this was a moderately enjoyable musical; with decent performances. Performance was actually three...continued

Disappointed after all the build-up. I think Disney missed the mark with this one. The plot was as thin and the songs as flat as a sheet of newspaper. Not a memorable song in the entire show. And Santa Fe? Really? Two and a half hours of the...continued

ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!!!!!! I'm a huge fan of dance and this the most excited and thrilled I've been by musical production in a long time. It's beyond me how those lads can churn out such physically and technically demanding, high energy...continued

We've seen several youth theater productions of Newsies (it's our granddaughter's favorite) and this was definitely the best. The voices were great, and the dancing and choreography was absolutely amazing.

Rear orchestra seats degraded our experience of a strong production.

I'm sure many people will like Newsies, but I found most of the dancing frenetic and the only words of the songs I understood were when they were song solo or in a duet. There was simply so much going on at any one time that I'm sure those sitting...continued

Energetic, exuberant dancing by the male ensemble. Creative sets and staging. The younger crowd was enthralled. Stunning interior theater archetecture and design. Valet parked for $10 at Fabiolos Cucina on Sunset, had excellent pre theater dinner...continued

The dancing was incredible. It was a fun show. I didn't especially like the changes they made to the story. I preferred the original.

Seats were very uncomfortable in that section but the sight lines were ok. I am glad I saw it. It was a high energy show with fantastic dancing with amazing choreography. The sets served the show very well and it was very entertaining.
