Disney’s new Alan Menken musical ‘Newsies’ opens at Winspear
Disney has been on a tear for decades, turning its animated movie properties into stage musicals (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Tarzan, etc.), but it’s also been doing it — albeit with less frequency — with its live-action properties: First with Mary Poppins, and now with Newsies, which became one of the dancingest shows in recent B’way history. The Tony Award-winning show about newsboys unionizing in turn-of-the-century NYC taps into the Winspear Wednesday for a two-week run.
