‘Newsies,’ the 1992 Disney cult classic based on the true story about the Newsboys Strike of 1899, didn’t really call itself a musical, but with a dozen song and dance routines, it’s hard to deem it anything else.

The theater world seems to agree, because the film has now been adapted into a stage musical. But without original stars Christian Bale, Robert Duvall, and Ann-Margret, will anyone care?

Take a look at the preview and judge for yourself. And if you’re interested in seeing it, you can check it out at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey from September 15 – October 16.
