BWW Review: North Carolina Theatre's NEWSIESBWW Review: North Carolina Theatre's NEWSIES
by Jeffrey Kare - Jul 25, 2018

Based on the 1992 Disney film of the same name, which in turn was inspired by the real-life newsboys strike of 1899 in New York City, Newsies tells the captivating story of a band of underdogs who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to the most powerful men in New York.
