One of the best CDs I have bought. Loved Newsies the Musical Movie (2017) but still waiting for the DVD to be released, are you listening Disney? Bought the CD because I love the great songs, full of happiness, sadness and love. Jeremy Jordan singing Santa Fe is wonderful. Don't miss this CD.
I have been a fan of the film musical and soundtrack, and am now a fan of the stage soundtrack as well. There have been song and lyric updates from the original, but formate most part I feel they are an improvement. Vocals and harmonies and lyrics are top notch as I would expect from these composers, and I've spent many an hour singing along on a long car trip.
After seeing this show in its opening season on Broadway (December 2012), we just had to get the soundtrack. In true Disney style, the music is an absolute infusion of fun, sadness, energy and frivolity, all in one. Hats (or caps) off (as ever) to Alan Menken who has created yet another absolute masterpiece which ought to entertain the whole family for generations to come. A great fun musical with some sound moral messages.
