Consider this the slightly more tolerable equivalent of how you can set almost anything to “Shake It Off” — or the musical theater-friendly version of videos making Beyonce dance to just about anything. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” proves to be just as versatile a pop hit as Taylor Swift’s contributions, as proven here when it’s applied to those lovable dancing ruffians from “Newsies.” Or maybe it’s just that the Newsies are up their with Bey in their adaptibility. Whichever, I’d gladly help cover the hospital bills of someone who wants to ask Christian Bale to recreate this performance. That boy had serious moves.
