“Well, it’s been such an incredible, improbable journey for Newsies…Jack, we’re kings of New York.” – Alan Menken

On June 10, 2012, the 66th Tony Awards were held at the Beacon Theater in New York City. The Disney Theatrical Productions musical Newsies: The Musical, having been nominated for eight Tony Awards, walked away with two: Best Choreography for Christopher Gattelli, and Best Original Score for Alan Menken and Jack Feldman. Although nominated for Best Musical, it would lose to the musical Once. In his acceptance speech, Alan Menken thanked the “generations of kids who adopted this movie and insisted that it be brought to the stage.”
