VIDEO: Watch Cast of NEWSIES Hit the Streets of New York City!

Cast members of Broadway's NEWSIES John Michael Fiumara, Jacob and David Guzman, and Jess LeProtto take to the streets of NYC to show off their tap skills in an all-new video promoting the acclaimed musical. Check it out below!

Since bursting onto Broadway, Newsies has set and broken seven Nederlander Theatre house records on its way to becoming the highest-grossing show of the 2011-12 Broadway season. The show received 23 major theatrical nominations - including eight Tony Award nods - and won Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Score and Choreography. The production just celebrated its second year on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre, and below you can check out photos from the cast's onstage celebration, which included a cake by City Bakery!

Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score with music by eight-time Academy Award® winnerAlan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, with a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, Newsies is directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work.

Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged 'newsies,' who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what's right.

Newsies is inspired by the real-life 'Newsboy Strike of 1899,' when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers.
