NEW YORK (AP) — Stop the presses: Broadway's "Newsies" is closing.

Disney Theatrical Productions said Sunday it will shutter the high-energy musical about newsboys after the Aug. 24 performance, pulling the plug on a 2-year-old show that has earned more than $100 million over some 1,000 shows but has seen its weekly take dip in recent months.

The sad news for "Newsies" fans will be softened somewhat by details on a North American tour that launches in October 2014 and will play 25 cities during the 2014-15 season.

It is set to play Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Miami and Washington, D.C.
