Cute boys in adorable outfits singing and dancing to totally catchy songs? Yes, please!
Long before Kenny Ortega directed the High School Musical films, he made his directorial debut in 1992 with Disney's Newsies, a movie musical about the 1899 newspaper boys' strike with the same iconic song-and-dance numbers that put HSM on the pop culture map.
Now, the cult favorite film is back -- but on the stage in the form of a musical at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ. With sold-out performances, spectacular reviews, and superstar fans (J-14 spotted Matthew Broderick in the audience!), Newsies is hotter than ever -- and capturing a whole new generation of fans.
J-14 chatted exclusively with Newsies stars Max Ehrich (who you may recognize from High School Musical 3, Shake It Up, and iCarly) and Andy Richardson (who performed in Gypsy with Patti LuPone) at the opening night. Plus get a sneak peek at some of their dance moves, just for you!
