Carpe Diem! Seize an opportunity to see Philadelphia’s one-week limited engagement of Disney’s NEWSIES at the Academy of Music from Tuesday, October 28 through Sunday, November 2. The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and The Shubert Organization are collaboratively presenting this Broadway Philadelphia’s Tony Award winning production. NEWSIES broke all sales records and was the highest grossing show of the 2011-2012 Broadway season. It not only won Tony Awards but Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Score and Choreography as well, and the original creative team is reuniting for this inception. Inspired by the real-life “Newsboy strike of 1899,” NEWSIES tells the tale of a band of teenaged newspaper boys who strike against Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst after they raise distribution prices at the boys’ expense. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, September 5 at 10:A.M. and can be obtained by calling 215-731-3333, visiting online at kimmelcenter.org/broadway, at the Kimmel Center Box Office, Broad and Spruce Streets, or the Academy of Music Box Office, Broad and Locust Streets. Don’t wait until this smash hit is sold out!
