In early December, Theatre Fan’s Shaun Tossell reported that Disney was planning a new production of their Tony Award-winning hit Newsies The Musical. And now Shaun’s scoop has officially been confirmed!
Today, Disney launched a website confirming that the musical is set for delivery later this year!
The promotional image (above) further confirms another detail in Shaun’s scoop – that being, it will be a new production separate from the Broadway version. We don’t know any key information, but Shaun mentioned that a top UK choreographer would create new choreography for the London production.
No other information regarding the cast or which theatre will house the show.
You can watch Newsies: The Broadway Musical and The News Boys (UK title for the original film) on Disney+ (regions depending).
