Newsies: The Broadway Musical – The Review Show 266

Extra, extra! It’s a Review Show first! We’re covering a filmed production of a live stage performance with Newsies: The Broadway Musical on Disney+. It’s 1899, and gangs of young boys are living on the streets and selling newspapers with the hopes of moving up in the world. When the publisher suddenly raises the prices the boys have to pay to get their papers, and refuses to compensate them for what they can’t sell, the kids unionize and strike. With the help of a rebellious girl reporter, they get all the other young workers of the city on their side and make a stand for kids everywhere.

The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture. We cover a variety of genres and mediums movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, audio dramas picking out a specific piece of entertainment that we can cover in a week’s time. Every episode, your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa dive into the media of the week (with a spoiler warning!), give recommendations, and take turns pitching the next topic. For one episode a month, we check in with continuing coverage on a longer title, like a full TV series or comics run, and follow it all the way to the end. Join us for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
