VIDEO: Newsies Forever! NEWSIES Movie Gets Digital Release Date

Newsies forever, second to none! Disney Theatrical Productions, along with former Newsies cast members Jack Sippel, Tommy Bracco, Iain Young, and Jordan Samuels, have just announced that the live Fathom production of Newsies will be released digitally on May 23 in a special video below!

The movie is now available for pre-order on iTunes and disneymoviesanywhere.com.

Presented by Fathom Events and Disney Theatrical Productions, the initial three-day cinema event broke ticketing records to become the highest-grossing Broadway event in Fathom Events history.

Captured live on stage, the event features Jeremy Jordan, reprising the Tony nominated role he created as "Jack Kelly." Fathom Events partnered with Disney Theatrical Productions to bring this spectacular stage show to the big screen, including special behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and creators.

Jordan is joined by original Broadway cast members Kara Lindsay as "Katherine," Ben Fankhauser as "Davey" and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as "Crutchie," and NEWSIES North American Tour stars Steve Blanchard as "Joseph Pulitzer," Aisha de Haas as "Medda Larkin," and Ethan Steiner as "Les."

Since opening on Broadway in 2012, NEWSIES has played 1,711 performances between Broadway and the North American tour, to more than 2.5 million audience members in 65 cities across the country, concluding its run at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre last fall where it was captured live on stage for this cinema event.
