Set in New York City at the turn of the century, the musical is the tale of newsie Jack Kelly, who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when Pulitzer and Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsies’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies his army of newsies to strike.”

    The Newsboys Strike of 1899 lasted approximately two weeks, from July 20 to August 2. The boys were led by newsboy Kid Blink (so named because he was blind in one eye). The height of the Newsboys Strike occurred when 2,000 newsboys jammed into New Irving Hall at the Bowery to hear Kid Blink speak, while another 3,000 flooded the streets. Joseph Pulitzer’s aide Don Seitz wrote of the strike, “The loss in circulation due to the strike has been colossal. It is really remarkable the success these boys have had.”
