Alan Menken, who penned the music for "Newsies," will be a featured guest on the program and will help introduce the cast performance medley of "Santa Fe" and "Seize The Day." The musical, according to press notes, is "based on the 1899 true story of a courageous group of scrappy newsboys who become unlikely heroes when they rally forces to fight an unscrupulous newspaper tycoon."
Newsies features a book by Harvey Fierstein, lyrics by Jack Feldman and music by Menken. Based on the Disney film written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White, it is directed by Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli.
"The View" features Daytime Emmy Award-winning hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd. The program airs in the New York metropolitan area on ABC, Channel 7, at 11 AM ET. Check local listings.
