Alan Menken’s Tony Award-winning musical Newsies is to be streamed to UK cinemas for the first time.
Set in New York City at the run of the century, Disney’s musical stars Jeremy Jordan as a charismatic newsboy who leads a group of newsies in a rebellion against greedy publishers.

The musical premiered at the Paper Mill Playhouse in 2011 and made its Broadway debut in 2012 where it ran for 1005 performances.
