(March 23, 2012)

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 03/23/12 -- Out of all of the new productions flooding Broadway this spring season, Newsies stands out as a must-see for theater enthusiasts.

The musical is a stage remake of the 1992 Disney film, which was a box office flop but later gained a cult following. Based on the Newsboys Strike of 1899, the plot follows a group of newsboys (known as "newsies") who rebel against New York City's newspaper publishers by refusing to work.

The initial fall 2011 tryout at Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey earned strong reviews, and the limited run of the current Broadway production has already been extended based on advance ticket sales. The show is now running through August 19, with the possibility of further extensions or an open run if the show continues to do well.

"I'm convinced that this will be the next big Disney hit," says Elizabeth Hoffman, Theater Specialist at, who saw Newsies during its fall tryout. "The staging was spectacular, and with a book by Harvey Fierstein and an updated score by the unmatched Alan Menken, the show begs for a standing ovation every time."

The current average price for Newsies tickets is $215, based on data from the TicketNetwork® Exchange*. Newsies opens on Broadway this March 29.

*As of 3/22/2012 1:00 p.m. EST. Prices may fluctuate based on market demand.
