Newsies (Original Broadway Cast Recording)
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
Alan Menken and Jack Feldman teamed up twenty years ago to write the music for this film and have done the show justice yet again. Many are upset about the lyric changes and the addition of many new songs and even the new Katherine Plumber character that replaced both Sarah and reporter Brian Denton, but they are all changes for the better and makes the musical that much better than before. The music is wonderful, Jeremy Jordan has a voice that will make teenagers cry because it's just that gorgeous and the ensemble cast (mostly boys) is reminiscent of the film. Personally, I think they did a wonderful job with the show and the music and am thrilled this cast album is finally available. Now, I just have to wait for Bonnie and Clyde :)
Good, but not great
This is a great soundtrack, but it's no where near as good as the Disney movie sound track with Bill Pullman and Christian Bale.
Great Movie - GREAT Broadway version
This movie is so friggin special to me... we used to watch it every day...even as an adult I will meet people and when someon brings up Newsies its about singing King of New York, Carryin the Banner....one of the most underrated movies of all time.....
