Great show for the whole family, but now it's closed. If there's a traveling version, be sure to see it.

Took my daughter to see to end her 15th birthday. We loved it. While visiting Manhattan it is a definite must do. The best way to end any stay.

Songs were plain and not outstanding; it was hard to understand the words and the plot was weak. The dancers were good but that is not enough to spend that type of money

I took my son to Newsies last night. What a great fast paced energenic musical. The actors were a triple threat with great dancing, acting and singing. A great show.
