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.

Go Behind the Scenes at Disney on Broadway

It seems like only yesterday that Disney debuted its first Broadway musical, Beauty and the Beast. But that’s just because time flies when you’re having theatrical fun: Beauty actually opened in 1994—which means that Disney on Broadway turns the big 2-0 this year.
