Newsies Is Coming to Movie Theaters in February!

One magical night this past September, pretty much the entire original cast of the Broadway production of Newsies came together for a single reunion performance in L.A. They seized the day. They carried the banner. They were once again kings of New Y...uh, Los Angeles.

For an illustration of just how amazing that is, take a look at Jeremy Jordan's pre-show face:

But if you're feeling sad about missing the historic Newsies reunion, don't. Because the whole shebang was filmed—and that film is coming to a movie theater near you in a few short months.

It's true! Front page story: The theatrical release dates were just announced, and you'll be able to watch Newsies, in all its original-cast splendor, at a theater near you on February 16, 18 and 22, 2017. (It's being presented by Fathom Events—the same company that brings the Bolshoi Ballet and the Met Opera to the big screen.)

You can find tickets here. And by the way? Dance Spirit was at the Newsies taping. You'll hear more about that in our February issue. Get excited, friends.
