Time Out says

Massive new north London theatre

This massively ambitious large-scale theatre (1,000-plus seats) is part of the even more ambitious 2019 plans for Troubadour, a new company that will also open a similar size theatre in White Palace this year.

But when dastardly newspaper boss Joseph Pulitzer decides to eat into their meagre profits by raising the prices they must pay for each paper, the boys risk everything by going on strike.It's a story that feels massively relevant at a time when half the UK's either on strike or wishing it was, but this is not the show for gritty social realism. Lead rabble-rouser Jack Kelly, played with spirit by Michael Ahomka-Lindsay, is easily this show's most complex character, as he wrestles with guilt about leading his mates into potential penury.
