WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — “Newsies,” Disney’s Tony Award -winning Broadway musical, will be the featured Night on Broadway performance during the winter 2013 edition of the New York International Gift Fair.

As part of this popular NYIGF after-hours event, tickets for the Monday, Jan. 28, performance are specially priced at $77 each, with the difference absorbed by NYIGF.

“NYIGF’s Night on Broadway is a popular and much-anticipated after-hours event for market participants,” said Christian Falkenberg, NYIGF director and GLM vice president. “We’re delighted to offer specially priced tickets to a two-time Tony award winner as part of our ‘only in New York’ slate of events.”

“Newsies” earned the 2012 Tony awards for Best Choreography and Best Original Score. The show features a score by Disney legend and eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein and choreography by Tony Award nominee Christopher Gattelli. It is directed by Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun.

Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, “Newsies” is the story of an unlikely band of underdogs who take on the biggest names in publishing in a remarkable fight for justice and fair pay. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, the plot centers on Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy who leads a ragged band of “newsies” in a fight against publishers Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, who raise newspaper distribution prices at their expense.

“Newsies” tickets will be available for purchase online at www.nyigf.com/programs after Oct. 12. The musical is playing at New York City’s Nederlander Theatre at 208 W. 41st St. Information about the musical is available online at www.newsiesthemusical.com.
