Editorial Reviews

Hot on the heels of the Broadway debut of Disney's Newsies, the Original Broadway Cast Recording is set for release, allowing the show's rabid fans across the country to experience what The New York Times calls 'terrific songs, buoyant melodies, rousing lyrics and a sweet, funny, emotionally satisfying book. A musical worth singing about!'

The cast recording features the musical s score by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and lyricist Jack Feldman, with book by four-time Tony Award® winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy). The stage version introduces brand-new songs while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including 'Carrying the Banner,' 'Seize the Day,' 'King of New York' and 'Santa Fe.' The iconic music is performed by the musical's original cast, headed by Jeremy Jordan.

Newsies played its first Broadway preview on March 15th, prior to its March 29th opening night. Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, Newsies is directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun (Big River revival) and choreographed by Tony nominee Christopher Gattelli (South Pacific revival).

Customer Reviews

It is a CD that you will find yourself listening to all the time.

I watch it almost everyday just so I can sing and dance along with the songs.

I was fortunate enough to see the Newsies on Broadway before it's offical debut. Let me tell you- Disney finally got it right! It took them a long time to get another exceptional show on stage, but Newsies is it. They took a different approach- economical, focusing on the music, dance, and story (which is what they should always do, but we know that for such an enormous enterprise as The Walt Disney Company that does not always happen). They kind of had to spend a lot less on it cause of all that they lost on The Little Mermaid and Tarzan (Newsies= $5 million vs. Mermaid's $15 million)- but it really worked with Newsies. There are very very few musicals that I have seen that actually leave me with my mouth dropped open- this is one of them. Now there are a few irreplaceable actors from the movie- namely Racetrack and Crutchie- hey, Max Casella is one of a kind- but don't get worked up about those changes. There are also some lyrical changes (that will take a bit to get used to) and a few story/character changes, but a lot of the changes were much needed (Let's face it guys- "My Lovey Dovey Baby" was just not happenin'). The movie as much as I really love it, was not fully ironed out. The Broadway version has tied up the loose ends of the movie, making it much more fluent. I was always so disappointed that the songs in the movie weren't LONGER. For such incredible songs they were just too bloody short!! Don't worry, the stage version has added adequent length to all songs and given us even more of them. I will always love Christian Bale's Jack Kelly, but Jeremy Jordan (who is a long time huge fan of the movie himself) does not disappoint. This album is an absolute MUST HAVE for any Newsies fan- it's what we've been waiting for, for, what is it- 20 YEARS!! It's a true dream come true.Read more ›

I was ecstatic that Amazon re-released the soundtrack- die-hard Newsies fans have been shelling out over $60 to get it on Ebay. And who can blame them? Alan Menken's upbeat soundtrack is one of the best parts of this movie. The voices and instrumentation are fantastic. I smile whenever I hear the first line: "In 1899, the streets of New York City echoed with the voices of Newsies..." Chills run up and down my spine with the Seize the Day chorale. I have to fight the urge to dance and sing along with the music every time I hear it. This CD is spinning in my CD player more than any other. Take advantage of this incredibly low price and buy the soundtrack today- it'll make a Newsies fan out of you! And while you're at it, search for Newsies under DVD and add your vote to get THAT released too. Thank you, Amazon!

I've been obsessed with Newsies ever since my Indoor Colorguard did a performance to "Carryin' the Banner" three years ago, and FINALLY the DVD & CD are available! This is such a catchy CD...almost all the songs are fun and upbeat, and great to listen to. I can honestly say I love every song on this CD...the *only* weak part being Bill Pullman's voice. The man is a great actor, but his singing should have been dubbed. But he only does a few lines, so it's not that a big deal. Other than that, the songs are equal parts fun and endearing...it's just a great CD!

Probably one of my most favorite Soundtracks from one of my most favorite movies of all time. I didn't get to see NEWSIES until about a year ago (on video). And I loved it! The music was one of the best parts of this who film...bringing the film to life. What energetic, fun-loving music?! This is the kind of music that is easy to sing along to and makes you wanna get up and learn the dance moves from the movie so you can dance all the numbers while you listen to this Soundtrack! Allen Menken and Jack Feldman made one of the best Soundtracks ever. My personal favorite tracks on this Soundtrack are "King Of New York", "Seize The Day", "The World Will Know", "Carrying The Banner", and of course my absolute favorite, Christian Bale's solo, "Santa Fe". And this is the real thing, too...it's not some recorded voices, it's actually all the actors singing these wonderful, unforgettable songs. If you loved the movie, NEWSIES, than this is a Soundtrack you must get. It's worth every penny (and hey, it's cheap here on Amazon.com, too...so not a bad deal!). It's definitely a must-have.

My kids and I love listening to this when we travel (which we've been doing a lot of lately). We already love the movie, the CD is just pure singing fun. My 5yo daughter especially-- she asks to listen to this whenever we're in the car. Even my 2yo daughter has memorized some of the lines! And, singing this keeps me awake when I'm driving at night.

I don't know how some reviewers could say that Christian Bale has an off-key voice. I've been singing in the choir for years, and his voice sounded fine to me-- especially considering that he was a teen when he sang this, and his voice was undoubtedly changing. Anyway, these are supposed to be teenage boys or younger playing street kids, some of them having never been recorded in their life. They're not supposed to sound like the Vienna Boy's Choir (although the acappella segment of the reprise of "Seize the Day" comes close).
