From the 1992 movie with Christian Bale and Bill Pullman to the Tony Award-winning musical, and now “Newsies” is headed back to theaters in early 2017. Better yet, Jeremy Jordan will be reprising his Tony Award-nominated performance as Jack Kelly.
Other actors from the original Broadway cast will be Kara Lindsay, Ben Fankhauser, and Andrew Keenan-Bolger. Joining them from the North American tour, Steve Blanchard and Aisha de Haas.
“From the very beginning, the stage adaptation of Newsies has had an exciting and entirely unexpected journey, propelled by the show’s passionate fan base,” said Thomas Schumacher, President and Producer, Disney Theatrical Productions. “We are thrilled to be working with Fathom Events and to have Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan and member of the original Broadway company join the North American touring cast as we take Newsies on it next exciting chapter, reaching new audiences around the world”.
There will be a single performance at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. “This special cinema event will entertain audiences across the country by reuniting the show’s original Broadway stars and creating the ultimate Newsies experience at the movie theater,” said John Ribey, CEO of Fathom Events. “When this production hits the big screen in 2017, Newsies fans will definitely want to ‘seize the day!’”
