Highlights From Newsies Starring Corey Cott and Kara Lindsay

Disney's Broadway hit Newsies is the Alan Menken-Jack Feldman-Harvey Fierstein adaptation of the 1992 movie musical that became a cult hit despite lackluster box office numbers. Broadway newcomer (and recent college grad!) Corey Cott stars as Jack Kelly, the leader of a gang of orphaned newsboys who strike against publishing magnate Joseph Pulitzer in 1899 New York. Kara Lindsay is Katherine Plumber, a young reporter struggling to be taken seriously, who finds a story in the newsboys' plight — and takes a slightly more personal interest in Jack Kelly. Directed by Jeff Calhoun and with choreography by Christopher Gattelli (who won a 2012 Tony for his work on the show), the production plays Broadway's Nederlander Theatre.
