"And the World Will Know."

 

Newsies is the story of the Newsboy strike that occurred in New York in 1899. I was inspired by the vertical and horizontal lines on the actual newspapers these boys would sell, and that translated to a lot of patterns. I played with plaids, stripes, and layering of garments to create intersecting lines that constantly crossed; this created a constant movement as these boys peddled their papers across the stage. I used lavish colors to create fantastic moments like with Medda and Bowery Beauties, and the lack thereof translated to Snyder & Pulitzer and their respective spaces. Color assisted in creating hope in a sea of sepia; as characters gained or lost hope their colors would mimic their feelings.
