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.
Kara Lindsay (as Katherine) and Ben Fankhauser (Davey) perform in this energetic and highly entertaining show. Austin's own, Tommy Martinez (pictured right), performed alongside Lindsay and Fankhauser in the original Broadway production of the show. Andrew Keenan-Bolger appears as Crutchie, a role originally understudied by Andy Richardson. When Keenan-Bolger left the Broadway show, Richardson stepped in and Martinez took over the understudy spot.
