Prison Dancer

You've heard about those dancing inmates from Cebu, Philippines, dancing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and a few other songs. But have you heard about the musical about them? The musical is aptly called, Prison Dancer, and it stars YouTube sensation and Canadian Idol alum, Filipino-Canadian Mikey Bustos. According to a report from ABS-CBN, it will become a web musical; i.e. we will be able to stream the musical and watch it online (or download it to watch offline) on our computers, tablets, smartphones, TVs, etc. There was no mention of whether the streaming (or download) will require any fee (i.e. the equivalent of an entrance fee to an actual live show) ala Louis C.K. While the cast and crew are all probably Canadian citizens, what's cool is that they're all mostly Filipino-Canadian. Filipinos represent!
