Fun, Great staging, Delightful, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you love Newsies, or if like me, you *don’t.* I have never been a fan of this musical, but this production is so good it ruined that.

Don't see it if you don’t want to be blown away by creativity and talent in a surprisingly immersive production.

Masterful, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a frenetic and brilliantly choreographed show. Some of the best dance sequences I’ve seen, high energy from start to finish.

Don't see it if you don’t like the action happening all around you. I also found some of the sound was quite bad in places- mics not being picked up etc.

The Times (UK)
December 9th, 2022

"Along the way it slightly loses track of its young characters’ fears and frustrations as it celebrates their defiant athleticism. If the storytelling were as sensational as the dancing, this would run for ever."

"I can absolutely see its themes resonating with audiences, particularly its inspiring message that the next generation of social justice warriors can change the world. ... 'Newsies' is going to be hitting the headlines for all the right reasons."

Time Out London
December 9th, 2022

" ‘Newsies’ is a perfect example of how a hard-working, perfectly synchronised cast can be a rousing metaphor for collective action of a more real-world kind, thrillingly embodying the kind of change the world needs to see."

"This is a vehicle for good songs, wry wisecracks and the most exuberant choreography this side of 42nd Street."

"The complexities of the 'newsies’ struggle may feel under-explored for adults, but as a primer on unionisation in our winter of discontent it’s a refreshing proposition for younger audiences."
