Calling all Broadway fans.
The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Newsies will be released digitally on iTunes on April 10. A physical release is set for May 15. The physical release will feature three special bonus tracks including an exclusive version of "Santa Fe" performed by lead Jeremy Jordan accompanied by Alan Menken on piano. To pre-order, go here.
Featuring 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 cast recording was produced by Alan Menken, Michael Kosarin, Frank Filipetti and Chris Montan with Executive Producer Kurt Deutsch. The stage version of Newsies includes many of the beloved songs from the film, while introducing six brand-new songs. The iconic music is performed by the musical's original cast, headed by Jeremy Jordan.
The limited engagement of Newsies played its first Broadway preview on March 15, prior to its March 29 opening night.
Though intended only as a pilot production before the title was licensed for regional, professional and amateur productions, Newsies' short run at the Paper Mill Playhouse last fall engendered extraordinary interest from the media and public alike. The show's cast was invited to perform on ABC's The View, the first time in the talk show's 15-season history that a regional production had ever done so.
