Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"Run, Freedom, Run! (Hunter Foster & Company, Urinetown)
Ulterior Motives: The Tony-nominated musical (who die-hard fans are still pissed didn't win) opened on this date in 2001 at Broadway's Henry Miller's Theatre. It was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and won three for direction, score, and book.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: 15 years later, this song is still a major jump off. I still live when they become the choir at 2:07 and Hunter Foster's ending notes at 3:25.
