  3. Prison Dancer: The Musical


In 2007, a YouTube video showing the inmates of a maximum-security prison in the Philippines dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” went viral on the internet. Who were these dancers? How and why did they do it? Romeo Candido (composer and book writer) and Carmen De Jesus (book writer) took inspiration from one of the world’s first viral videos to bring audiences inside the redemption, suffering, and joy that embodies the story told in this incredible new musical. An award-winning transmedia experience that spans multiple platforms, Broadway-bound Prison Dancer is a modern inspired-by-a-true-story about how fears can hold us captive and the power of art and connection can set us free through dance!
