    At the Pantages Theatre next month, a performance of Disney’s Tony Award-Winning musical Newsies will be filmed with original cast members Jeremy Jordan, Kara Lindsay, Ben Fankhauser, and Andrew Keenan-Bolger returning to the roles they’ve originated on Broadway.

    It will then be screened in movie theatres through Fathom Events early next year!

    Seeing it tonight. These Fathom things are pretty pricey at $24 considering you could see the show live on tour for around $30, but what are ya gonna do?

    I’m seeing this at The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood – there are only 2 dates left – Saturday, February 18 at 12:55pm and Sunday, February 22 at 7:00pm. The rest of the engagement there is sold out. In my opinion, it’s the best place and only way to see this if you are in LA : https://elcapitantheatre.com/event/1786/showtimes/2017-02-18 Only 2 Dates left! Sat,Feb 18 at 12:55pm & Sun, Feb 22 at 7pm –  @ElCapitanThtre !

    I just got back from seeing Newsies, and I thought it was incredible! The cinematography and editing in my opinion did an excellent job of capturing the staging, performances, and especially Christopher Gattelli’s choreography. I also really liked how they showed the audience reactions after certain numbers.

    Saw this last night. Disney doesn’t half-ass anything, so the production itself was spectacular. A great set, and really terrific camerawork that let you see the specifics of the performances, but didn’t lose the overall effect of the staging. I thought the audience pans felt a little too self-congratulatory at times, but the Pantages is a beautiful theater, so it was nice to see the house. Jeremy Jordan overacted a bit in “Santa Fe” and you certainly don’t want to stand too close to him when he sings (very spitty), but mostly the performances were well done.

    The show itself is still problematic–the anthems tend to run together for me, and the book is simplistic with an embarrassingly cardboard villain, but that’s all water under the bridge now. It is what it is. The production itself is first-class and I hope it’s very successful and encourages more ventures like this.

    I had a smile on my face the entire time! I actually didn’t like the camera panning to the audience, it kinda of took away from the feeling you were watching it in the theater. But overall it was just so enjoyable.
