During the summer of 1899, a ragtag band of newsboys stood up against the most powerful newspaper publishers in New York City to demand a fair shake. In the spring of 1992, Disney released a live-action musical film based on these historical events. "Newsies" inspired a generation of musical-theater performers and fueled a fervent, almost cultlike, fan base that ultimately demanded that this story be brought to the stage. However, it wasn't until two decades later, after beating countless odds, this musical about a very unlikely triumph achieved by youngsters landed on Broadway and became a veritable hit. "Newsies: Stories of the Unlikely Broadway Hit" features more than one hundred first-person accounts of the creation and impact of "Newsies"--from historical research, film, production, and stage development through the musical's first anniversary on Broadway.
