Disney’s Newsies features a score by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony® Award winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy). While on Broadway, Newsies received 23 major theatrical nominations—including eight Tony Award nods—and won Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Score and Choreography.
Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.
Newsies is inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899,’ when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week- long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers. Timely and fresh, the fictionalized adaptation of Newsies addresses age-old themes of social injustice, exploitative labor practices, and David-versus- Goliath struggles as the young learn to harness their power against a corrupt establishment. High-energy with non-stop thrills, the stage version introduces eight brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including Carrying the Banner, Seize the Day, King of New York and Santa Fe.

About the Partnership
Globe, the #1 mobile brand in the Philippines, has always gone the extra mile to cater to the evolving lifestyle of its customers. Wanting to give a richer experience whether online or on-ground, Globe expanded its efforts to give Filipinos access to world-class content and entertainment with the launch of Globe LIVE and its concept of ‘accidental theater.’
Through Globe LIVE and its original live productions, content that used to be available only to a few, such as theater, was now easily enjoyed by many. By building a dynamic space like the entertainment zone at Globe Iconic Store BHS Amphitheater, Globe was able to open up a whole new venue for more inclusive events.
The first and only open-air theater concept in the country, Globe LIVE had a banner launch with its first ever full-on Filipino theatrical production in partnership with 9Works Theatrical, Green Day’s American Idiot.
Further validating its success is its recent major wins at the coveted Broadway World Philippines Awards for 2016. Globe LIVE and 9Works Theatrical’s Green Day’s American Idiot gained recognition in 8 significant categories:
● Best Choreography (Musical)—PJ Rebullida
● Best Crossover Artist (Mainstream to Theater)—Jason Fernandez
● Best Direction of a Musical—Robbie Guevarra
● Best Featured Actor (Musical)— Basti Artadi
● Best Featured Actress (Musical)— Alex Godinez
● Best Hair & Make-up Design—Myrene Santos
● Best Locally Produced Broadway Show (Musical/Play)—American Idiot
● Best Musical Direction (Musical)—Daniel Bartolome/Onyl Torres
Staying true to its commitment of creating more world-class productions, the audience can look forward to the annual A Christmas Carol holiday production in December, as well as Globe LIVE’s latest venture with 9Works—Disney’s internationally acclaimed musical, Newsies.
