The cast of the current national tour of Disney's hit stage adaptation of cult classic movie musical NEWSIES showed up to surprise fans at a special screening of the film held in Los Angeles earlier this week and a new video of the event is now available to view.
The official Disney On Broadway YouTube account posted the video along with the following description: "When we found out the The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood was hosting a one-night-only showing of the 1992 film, we knew we had to do something special. Watch the cast of NEWSIES on Tour surprise a movie theater full of Fansies with a special performance."
The official description of NEWSIES on Broadway is as follows: "Winner of the 2012 Tony Awards® for Best Score and Best Choreography, NEWSIES is a high-energy explosion of song and dance you don't want to miss. Now touring North America! Audiences and critics alike are calling it "SOMETHING WORTH SINGING ABOUT!" (The New York Times) Inspired by the real-life "Newsboys' Strike of 1899," NEWSIES is Disney's brand-new, New York musical about an unlikely band of underdogs who take on the biggest names in publishing in a remarkable fight for justice and fair pay. With an incredible breakout cast and the best singing and dancing on Broadway, NEWSIES has quickly become "THE TALK OF THE TOWN!" (Newsweek). This "IRRESISTABLE, HIGH-ENERGY WINNER!" (Entertainment Weekly) is the work of an accomplished and talented creative team. Featuring a Tony Award-winning score by Disney Legend Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein, this dynamic smash hit showcases Tony Award-winning choreography by Christopher Gattelli and is directed by Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun."
