BWW Review: NEWSIES are the Kings of SacramentoBWW Review: NEWSIES are the Kings of Sacramento
by Harmony Wheeler - Apr 14, 2016

'Newsies' made the headlines as a flop Disney film back in 1992, but the musical garnered a cult following that led to its 2012 revamp on Broadway. The national tour of that production, now on its final leg, carries the banner to Sacramento this week with its own outstanding effects worthy of above-the-fold, front page attention. (more...)

by Kate Elliott - Mar 5, 2016

Disney's NEWSIES is a high-energy powerhouse of dancing, gymnastics, and rafter-raising singing. If you have ever enjoyed a Disney film in which a ragtag group of underdogs overpower 'the establishment,' then you'll know exactly what to expect from this storyline -- but that doesn't mean you won't be smiling and tapping your toes the whole time.

BWW Review: Disney's NEWSIES at The Fox TheatreBWW Review: Disney's NEWSIES at The Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Jan 25, 2016

It's not unusual for movies to be adapted for the stage these days, in fact, it's become rather commonplace. But typically, musicals written for the screen that flop (even though they might have a rather substantial cult following), are usually avoided for obvious reasons. Although, that didn't stop the producers of XANADU from plowing forward, go figure. The Disney film NEWSIES actually seems likes a logical choice to revamp and produce on the stage, and it wound up winning Tony Awards for best score and choreography back in 2012, and becoming quite the hit. So why am I so surprised? I guess because the current touring production, while occasionally dazzling, comes off slightly uninspired and flat. Now, don't get me wrong, there are some really fine performances, an eye catching scenic design, cool effects, and energetic choreography that certainly lives up to expectations. And, like the film, an awful lot of people, both young and old, are guaranteed to truly love this show, as evidenced by the very enthusiastic response from the audience at the performance I attended.
