A definite favorite... What a super show! I grew up loving the movie and can now say that I LOVE the bway show. You will not be disappointed... this is a show for all with one showstopper after another. The singing and dancing are outstanding. The set design was amazing as well! Go see Newsies! Ps: Sat in the rear Mezz and could see everything fine! :)

Went to see Newsies on July 5th without a lot of preconceived notions. I had not seen the movie and knew very little about the storyline. I was absolutely blown away. Every musical number was full of incredibly full harmony and the dancing was outstanding. The energy in the theatre was unbelievable. Long ovations that the cast had to wait multiple times to begin again. Jeremy Jordan as the lead was completely compelling. His acting, not to mention his singing, was certainly worthy of a Tony award. I predict he will become a superstar on Broadway (if he's not already). I have seen 10-15 shows on Broadway including Phantom, Les Miz, Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Spiderman, Beauty and the Beast, etc. and this has instantly become one of my favorites. Go see it!!!

What a show! Didn't think I would like the script changes, but the story is great either way! Don't take chances, get your tickets early. Theatre is small.

GREAT SHOW! I've seen quite a few musicals and I have not seen a show with this much talent, charisma, and energy on the stage and that energy transfers into the audience. Applause went on several minutes after almost every song. I am by no means a dancer, but this show made me want to take a dance class. The Choreography was INTENSE.
Jeremy Jordan definitely has the IT factor. He commands the stage and is so into every single moment.
As a whole, NEWSIES is a great ensemble piece. It was great to see a piece where the ensemble really is the driving force of the entire show.

I have never seen the Newsies movie so I can't compare it to the stage version. However, as a professional theatre person it takes a lot to impress me and pull me into the story. Newsies does just that. I loved all of the dancing-after all it is a musical so it is to be expected. The music was great as well-especially the ballad "Something to Believe In." The technical elements were also very impressive yet not as complex as most Disney shows. I liked the simplicity of the set. I was surrounded by a range of people who all enjoyed the show trememendously-young to old. I am going back to see it next month and would recommend it to anyone who wants a great musical to see.

I am a huge fan of the movie and knew that I had very high expectations. I also knew that there was a big possibility of being disappointed since I have been waiting about ten years for this movie to make it's way to Broadway. My expectations were far exceeded. The dancing, singing, and set were phenomenal. My attention was held the entire time and I could not stop smiling. The audience was so engaged and the actors seemed to genuinely enjoy everything they were doing. The edits and additions to the story only enhanced the show. I want to see this again and I again. I cannot believe that someone found the dancing to be "too much" and the use of repetitive melodies to be "annoying." Everyone sitting around me said it was one of the best shows they had ever seen. Also the accents were exactly the way they were in the movie- not Boston-esque. I can't explain how incredible it was! GO GO GO!
