A Sneak Peek at Alan Menken's Newsies, the Musical

The Disney movie-musical "Newsies" didn't exactly catch fire at the box office in 1992, but it earned a cult of fans who embraced Alan Menken and Jack Feldman's pop score (including the songs "Seize the Day" and "Santa Fe") and the passion of the youthful characters as it told the fact-inspired tale of a newsboys' labor strike in 1890s New York. That cult is about to get larger with a new expanded stage version, Newsies, with fresh songs by Menken and Feldman, and a new script by Harvey Fierstein, testing it wings at Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey. Playbill was on hand Sept. 1 at the New 42nd Street Studios for a sneak peek at the show starring Jeremy Jordan as streetwise Jack Kelly, Andrew Keenan-Bolger as sidekick Crutchie and Kara Lindsay as Katherine Plumber, a newly invented love interest.
