NEWSIES AT PAPER MILL NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: September 15, 2011
Did He Like It?*
Newsies is inspired by the real life 'Newsboy Strike of 1899,' when newsboy Kid Blink led the ragged orphans and runaways known as newsies on a two-week long action against Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, the musical is the tale of newsie Jack Kelly, who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when Pulitzer and Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsies' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies his army of newsies to strike.
Newsboy Strike? Sing All About It
*By DAVID ROONEY

"With its spring-loaded backflips, airborne spins, rambunctious kicks and balletic pivots, the athletic ensemble in “Newsies the Musical,” which opened on Sunday at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, N.J., puts up a persuasive struggle against corporate greed. But the irrepressible physicality of that scrappy band of ragamuffins is just part of what turns this canny stage transformation of Disney’s 1992 big-screen misfire into a crowd pleaser. "
