Broadway Review: NEWSIES

You have to hand it to the folks in marketing at Disney Theatrical.  They started by playing it safe with their new musical Newsies by initially announcing it as "101 performances only."  Then they announced that they were extending through August 19.  Frankly, if Newsies closes this year, I'll eat my hat.  You know how I can say that?  Because Broadway producers don't close a hit, and that's exactly what Disney has on its hands.

Newsies, based on the 1992 movie of the same title,  has music by Broadway veteran Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and a book from the one-and-only Harvey Fierstein.  The time is 1899 and a hardscrabble group of newspaper boys, entrepreneurs really, have just had a price increase thrust upon them by newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer (John Dossett).  At the same time, a transit strike is going on and this gives the boys the idea to band together and go out on strike.
