“Seize the Day” – Newsies

Music: Alan Menken   Lyrics: Jack Feldman

Make the most of your day today with this song which is the English translation of “carpe diem,” the oft-quoted Latin phrase that encourages one to live for the moment.  At this particular juncture which occurs shortly before the end of act one, the titular protagonists rally together in this musical based on the famous 1899 newsboys’ strike in New York City.
