Storyline

Filmed live on stage at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, CA, this not-to-be-missed high energy show stars Original Broadway cast members Jeremy Jordan as "Jack Kelly," Kara Lindsay as "Katherine," Ben Fankhauser as "Davey" and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as "Crutchie". They're joined by North American Tour stars Steve Blanchard as "Joseph Pulitzer," and Aisha de Haas as "Medda Larkin," and Ethan Steiner as "Les" along with members of both the Broadway and North American Tour ensembles, filling the stage with more "newsies" and more dancing than ever before. Set in New York City at the turn of the century and based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged 'newsies,' who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies ...

Trivia

This performance of the musical combines members of the original Broadway cast with members of the touring cast. See more »

Goofs

During the song That's Rich, Jack can be seen on the left of the stage as a member of the audience watching. At about 27:44, a different man is sitting in Jeremy Jordan's seat. You can clearly see it's a different person. Within a few seconds, Jeremy Jordan is back in the seat. It has been reported that while one live performance was given for the taping, the show was also performed multiple times over several days to an empty theater for filming as well. Likely, multiple takes of the performance were edited into the final film and Jeremy Jordan must have needed a stand-in for at least one take. See more »

Absolutely Amazing
20 February 2017 | by nheoaSee all my reviews

I am one that enjoys Broadway shows and to combine both the Broadway & North American Tour together to make this show was Amazing. I hope they make this into a DVD like they did with CATS. The stage show personal touch versus a cinematic approach makes the show 1000x times better and easier to relate to the characters.
