Newsies is a bold and lavish production, a full-blown musical which calls to mind popular musicals of the '60s and '70s. Loosely based on the true story of the New York newspaper boy strike of 1899, the uplifting part of this tale focuses on a group of teenaged-and-younger newspaper sellers who decide to take a stand. When the newspaper publishers seek an increase in profits, and recognizing that a price raise for the public would have a negative effect on sales, they decide to increase their profits by charging more to the kids who sell their papers. Led by teen fugitive Jack Kelly, the boys unite with those in the city to not budge, even if a strike means hardships for them.
