Since opening on Broadway over a year and a half ago, Disney's Broadway musical version of its cult hit movie Newsies has earned many Tony Award nominations, earned back its initial investment, and become a family favorite on the Great White Way. Now, the celebrated production is making plans to hit the road for its North American tour. The Newsies Broadway touring production is set to launch in October of 2014 in Schenectady, New York. In 2014 and 2015, the tour is scheduled to hit 25 cities, including Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Louisville, Miami, Nashville, Toronto, Tucson, Washington D.C., and many places in between. “The enthusiasm from North American audiences and theatres for a Newsies tour has been palpable," stated Thomas Schumacher of Disney Theatrical Productions, "proving that the affection for this title is deeper and more widespread than even we imagined."
