Newsies The Musical

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.

A new generation is taking over the Des Moines Playhouse! I'm not talking about a new artistic director, or the close of their 100th season. This generation can be seen on stage in DMP's production of Disney's 'Newsies: The Musical' which opened this weekend. I say a new generation because half, if not more, of the cast are making their DSM debuts, and if this production is any indication of where the Playhouse is going, they will be around for another 100 years and more.
