REVIEWS

...a dazzling family friendly delight... Choreographer Christopher Gattelli went to town hiring some of the city's best athletic young hoofers. So not only does Newsies possess ample heart and soul, it has legs — dozens of them tapping, twirling and tumbling gracefully all over the stage. Every one of these boys stands out. Special mention to dance captain Ryan Steele who comes close to turning scene stealer... 
But it’s Jeremy Jordan as the swaggering Jack Kelly who once again takes Newsies to new heights. He is a star, yes even a Broadway king, in the making.

- Roma Torre, NY1
Not since Wicked has there been a big-tent, family-friendly Broadway musical that gets so much so right... The Alan Menken–Jack Feldman score pleasingly blends music-hall orchestral swing and power pop, and Feldman’s lyrics are more graceful than you’d expect from a show aimed primarily at tweens. Harvey Fierstein’s book brims with sass and big-hearted sympathy for the underdog. And director Jeff Calhoun’s designers balance a gray-brown palette with splashes of color (mostly from costumes), creating grit to rub up against the material’s built-in melodrama and sentimentality. Jeremy Jordan is a charismatic wonder in the lead role of Jack Kelly... Old-fashioned book musicals with pluck, brains and heart are so rare these days; when you see one as blissfully fun as Newsies, it belongs on the front page in 72-point type.

- David Cote, Time Out New York
