NOW IS THE TIME TO SEIZE THE DAY with NEWSIES, Disney's triumphant, smash-hit New York musical.

It's the record-breaking, Tony Award -winning Broadway phenomenon that tells the story of an unlikely band of underdogs who take on the biggest names in publishing in an "INSPIRATIONAL" (The Hollywood Reporter) fight for justice.

NEWSIES is "EXHILARATING!" (NY Daily News) and "ELECTRIFYING!" (Vogue) with music from Tony Award winners Alan Menken and Jack Feldman as well as dancing from Tony Award winner Christopher Gattelli. "A THRILLING AMERICAN MUSICAL" (Philadelphia Inquirer) with a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein and directed by Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun, NEWSIES is a "TOP CRITICS' PICK" (New York Magazine, Time Out New York, Entertainment Weekly).

It's "THE PERFECT MUSICAL FOR OUR TIMES!" (The Star-Ledger) and now's the perfect time to get your tickets to the true, New York story that can only be seen in New York.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Newsies The Musical

'Newsies': Cheerful Disney on Broadway
8 / 10

What the show, directed with rousing two-dimensional enthusiasm by Jeff Calhoun, lacks in originality is disguised -- if not quite hidden -- by a big, talented cast of actors (and several actresses). There is also ingenious erector-set scenery by Tobin Ost and, especially, lots of exuberant, soft-bounce high-precision tap, balletic and acrobatic invention by choreographer Christopher Gattelli. Jeremy Jordan, who made his first impression this season in the short-lived 'Bonnie and Clyde,' is the heart -- even the heartthrob -- of the action as Jack Kelly, leader of the homeless urchins. With his big jaw and his bad-boy glint, Jordan suggests the seriously comic appeal of Donald Duck's handsome nephew.

Newsies Is The New Annie: My Review Of The Male Urchin Musical
8 / 10

Like I said, it's not deep--and it sort of just ends--but it's zippy fun, and it's so expertly done, I might even write about it in the pape too. Extra! Extra! Newsies is a hit.
