Newsies has a Tony-winning score with music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, and a book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. The production was directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work on the show.

Disney’s Newsies: The Broadway Musical was captured live at The Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 2016, with several original principal cast members stepping in to reprise their performances.

Stars in the House launched March 16 to promote support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

New shows—streaming Monday–Saturday at 8 PM ET with afternoon shows Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director. Click here to watch previous episodes.
