Newsies, the new adaptation of the 1992 Disney movie musical, began performances at New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse Sept. 15, prior to an official opening set for Sept. 25. Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun, director of Broadway’s upcoming Bonnie & Clyde, directs the Paper Mill limited engagement that runs through Oct. 16.


Here, in the third video of the behind-the-scenes series, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, who plays Crutchie in Newsies, takes the camera to "The View," where the gang recently performed a medley of "Seize the Day" and "Santa Fe." Before going on, the cast got ready in their dressing rooms—warming up, stretching and, of course, high-fiving their director on their way to the stage.

Newsies, according to press notes, 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.”
