We’ve got your YouTube needs covered.
Heather Headley Makes You Question Your Entire Life During “What I Did For Love”
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: The Divine Ms. H only teased “Your Daddy’s Son” on Insta and it was enough to kill us. Then she took to Facebook and posted this A Chorus Line classic and it was beyond everything. That “won’t forget, can’t regret” into the ending at 3:09
Andrew Kober Was Completely Miscast in High School
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Andrew Kober SLAYS this entire thing vocally—like holy shit! I personally lived my entire life when he transitioned into “Steam Train” from Songs For a New World at 2:17.
Andy Mientus Makes Us Want an All-Smash Revival of Merrily
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Ok, you can totally revive Merrily We Roll Along with Smash actors: Andy, Jeremy, and Krysta as Charlie, Franklin, and Mary; Hilty as Gussie; and McPhee as Beth. 😍 Give it up for Andy. I was legit moved from 3:30 to the end.
Alistair Brammer & Eva Noblezada Bring Saigon to Today
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: We all knew Eva could sing you beneath the carpet, but damn, that Alistair has some pipes! The two of them together were lit AF.
Yale Rep’s Assassins Isn’t Afraid of Folky Sondheim
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: So much to love about this clip of "How I Saved Roosevelt": the arrangement, Julia Murney’s voguing at :47, or when the cast really breaks it down at 1:58.
Cynthia Erivo Throws Down Ragtime Style
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Cynthia Erivo was back on Broadway for one-night-only singing "Make Them Hear You" at Broadway Backwards, and damn, did she slay. If you love Cynthia when she’s larger than life, you can start this clip at 2:00, but def. be there for 2:38. #PleaseComeBacktoBwaySoonCynthia
