Newsies: The Broadway Musical is now on Netflix!
YesBroadway is all about live theater, which rarely translates well to film. But, Disney Theatricals puts that Disney money to good use again and again, this time making you feel like you're seeing a Broadway show live and in person even though you're watching from the comfort of your couch!
The Newsies Movie Event is the national tour of the Broadway production filmed live in Los Angeles with a rambunctious audience. Whether you are channeling your inner 14-year-old girl or actually are one, you will scream with delight every time the adorable cast breaks into one of the boisterous dance numbers the show is famous for. Much of the original cast came back to do this taping and their performances simply shine. Jeremy Jordan was nominated for a Tony for a reason: he is so gobsmackingly good in the lead role that you can't imagine anyone else ever doing it.
Incredible musical numbers make the audience at the taping leap to their feet with mid-show standing ovations and you'll want to join them in their thunderous applause after each song. Thanks to extremely HD cameras capturing closeups from every angle and excellent sound quality, you feel like you constantly have the best seat in the house for each song and that the orchestra is right below you vibrating your couch with pulsating energy. You cry with excitement at the curtain call and you come home buzzing and humming with that "Broadway high" that you usually only have after live theater. Newsies, quite simply, charms your face off and you'll be very glad it's archived forever on film for you to watch over and over and over again.
