SynopsisEdit

Based on the newspaper boys strike of 1899, the musical follows Jack "Cowboy" Kelly and David Jacobs, two boys who deliver newspapers to eak out a meagre living. In contrast to the poor kids, are the posh New York offices of the newspaper moguls Joseph Pulitzer and Randolph Hearst who decide to jack up their profit margin by paying the newsboys ten percent less. This precipitates the strike and leads to a confrontation between the weak and the strong.
