EXTRA, EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT!!! The headlines from a fictional production now on stage at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. The Broadway musical, Disney Newsies, is based upon a true event in 1899 about the newsboys in New York taking a stand against the mogul newspaper giant Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of the New York World.

In fact, all through the month of October there will be music, laughter, great costumes and high jinxes with the kick off for the 2015/16 season. It’s the Tony award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Drama Desk Award winner Ken Jennings, who starred as Tobia Ragg in the original production of Sweeney Todd, will be filling some mighty big comedic boots in the role of Pseudolus; however, his Broadway credits make it a sure fire bet that he’ll succeed.
