Sieze the Chance to See Newsies

The stage filled with a dozen boys spinning, leaping and flipping across the stage in a style that has become synonymous with Newsies. The 2012 Tony Award winning choreography really steals the show. Choreographer Christopher Gattelli leads us through an action packed New York City adventure set to music by Alan Menken. Based on the real life events of the Newsboys Strike of 1889, we see Jack Kelly (Joey Barreiro) and the newsboys of New York City take on newspaper…

Newsies in the Minne-apple

Why did Jack Kelly decide to stay in New York? Well, because he fell for the BIG APPLE.

                Lucky for Minnesota audiences, the Broadway touring company of Newsies made their way from the big apple down to Minne-apple(is)’ Orpheum Theater this past Tuesday. Although some may say it was a crisp performance, others may argue it was a bit sour for their tastings. For a company with such a well renounced name, the quality of the performance was…

Newsies is Emotionally and Visually Striking

Maddie Turk

Newsies

Last spring, my choir sang a medley of Newsies’ songs. I was instantly struck by the beauty of Alan Menken’s expert composition. There are few composers who can pack as big of an emotional punch as Menken. I soon became obsessed with the Newsies soundtrack, listening to the music nonstop. Naturally, I was a little nervous walking into the Orpheum Tuesday night to see the touring production of Newsies that is currently playing through…

Newsies Will Give You Something to Believe In

After attending the opening night performance of Newsies at the Orpheum, I can finally understand all the hype surrounding the show. Though a story about a couple of ragtag newsboys fighting for their rights as workers in Lower Manhattan during the late 1800s might not seem very uplifting or particularly interesting, the performance was so passionate that the audience became completely enthralled within the first few scenes. With music by one of…

Newsies is Fabulous: and that's the Bottom Line

 

At the turn of the twentieth century, America was a whirlwind of industrialization, changing gender roles, and socio-economic inequality. Children were forced to earn money for their families, women were starting to go to work, and the rich were only getting richer. Countless stories emerged from this time period, but one specific story was captured by Disney in 1992 for a movie. After much success of the movie, it was adapted for the stage…

Newsies the Musical

Headline: Musical

As a musical theater fan and performer, I enjoy that Newsies, shows the traditional side of musical theater.  Containing friendships, romance, full dance numbers, one too many reprises of our favorite song, and a beautiful musical score.

Newsies, originally a Disney movie in 1992, focuses on a young orphan named Jack Kelly at the turn of the century. Kelly and his friends…

Seize the Day and See This Show!!

In the summer of 2013 I saw my first Broadway show, Newsies. I photographed every moment of that night, got my playbill signed and bought the album to continuously listen to on repeat up until today. Up until today I thought nothing could ever live up to the standards of Corey Cott and stepping into the Nederlander theatre, however to some extent I was mistaken. The second I sat down in my seat and saw Sven Ortel’s beautiful set design I was instantly transported into the world of the 1920’s…

Minute by Minute

 

Sitting in row D is a spiritual experience for me. It is as if the Good Lord of Theater has seen my years of service and grants me first place in line for Theater Heaven. Everything is better in row D. You can see the actors’ sweat, the actors’ facial expressions, and if you have been a good theater goer that year, you might get the ultimate blessing of being baptised by spit. Row D is the holy grail, unattainable and a myth to those, like me,…

Written by Kate Lawless

Newsies Review

The National Tour of Newsies, performing at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, is set in 1899, a time of rampant injustice which sparked the Progressive movement, particularly in large American cities. The Newsies are examples of the victims of such injustice, as boisterous young men…

EXTRA EXTRA read about Newsies!

Newsies

 

Disney’s Newsies opened on February 9th at the Orpheum in Minneapolis. Newsies is a story about the newsboy strike of 1899. The story follows the rebellion that these boys have started in hopes of receiving fair wages. A powerful message mixed with a great script and phenomenal dancers and singers makes for the ideal musical.

 

My favorite performance by far was the role of Jack Kelly played by Joey Barreiro. His voice was…

The World Will Know How Good This Show Is

     How can a musical about teenage boys selling newspapers possibly be entertaining? At its premise, Newsies may not sound like a very thrilling show. I can assure you that that’s not the case at all.  Newsies, directed by Jeff Calhoun, tells the story of New York City’s newsboys, led by Jack Kelly (Joey Barreiro), as they strike against newspaper tycoon Joseph Pulitzer (Steve Blanchard) for fair paper prices at the end of the…

Extra! Extra! The Kings of New York Seize the Day!

Newsies originated as a musical film starring Christian Bail and there has been talk for some time about taking the show to the stage. Now that it is finally happening there are some people who are semi-sceptical if this production will live up to the Broadway standards, but rest assured that if you are a fan of the film, you’ll like the theatrical version even more!

 

The story follows a band of of…

Feeling Blue?

    Sometimes it can really be hard to tell the difference between a séance and family friendly show. Let’s be real, in a progressive society like today, feeling uncomfortable is the new cool. Not only that, but questioning whether or not you wasted a few hours of your life watching inanimate, blue plastic men make juvenile jokes is the new best way to spend a date-night. Anyway, you have a $50 ticket that begs to differ otherwise.

    A pool of these middle-aged (but young at…
