John Dossett created the role of Joseph Pulitzer for Disney’s Newsies when it first ran at Papermill last fall, and he’s been in the role ever since.

It was recently reported that he would be leaving the cast of Newsies from October 9 through December 16 to perform in the Public Theater’s new musical, Giant.

During this time, the behemoth Pulitzer will be played by Tony Nominee Ron Raines.

Raines received a Tony Nomination for his role as Ben Stone in the recent Broadway revival of Follies. He has also been seen on Broadway in Chicago, Show Boat, and Teddy and Alice. He has also received three Emmy nominations for his work on “Guiding Light.” Raines has starred in numerous regional musical productions.
