Alan Menken and Newsies at Paper Mill Playhouse

Alan Menken and Newsies at Paper Mill Playhouse

The 1992 Disney movie-musical "Newsies" was not a box office smash - the epic, fact-inspired tale of a newsboys' labor strike in 1890s New York was a notorious flop.  However, nearly two decades later, the movie's passionate cult following - and Menken and Feldman's enduring pop score - have helped to create enough demand for a new expanded version for the stage.  The NEW Newsies musical will premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey on September 15th.  Christopher Benincasa met up with Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken at a sneak peek of the show at its rehearsal space at the New 42nd Street Studios in Manhattan.
