'Newsies' delivers winner at the Fox!

"Newsies," a Disney film musical made famous in the early nineties with a younger and lesser known Christian Bale, grew ever more popular after making its Broadway debut in 2012. The stage version of this cult classic went on to receive two Tony® awards for its score and choreography, and has since reached over a million audiences. This latest tour of "Newsies" includes a stop at the Fabulous Fox Theater, offering a nostalgic treat for some and a high-energy theatrical experience for all.

Stray Dog Theatre brings a fantasy fairy tale to life in a charming staging of "Spellbound, a musical fable," a world premiere musical fable by the company's artistic director Gary F. Bell and his friend and writing partner Robert L. White. The inventive script borrows liberally from nostalgic interpretations of traditional European fairy tales with numerous quips and references to more contemporary American pop culture, from the blues, rock, and doo wop to children's books, movies, and television.

Writer/director Stuart Murdoch's "God Help the Girl" has as sweet a heart as its protagonist Eve does. In this age of so many mean-spirited offerings, that makes it a welcome change while it also offers a challenge, for this quietly effective story, set in a sunny Glasgow and peppered with musical interludes, unfolds slowly, with restraint.
