7 Awesome Videos You Love... We Love... of Pronoun Showdown

Do we know what you love? Do you know what we love? Well, we love Pronoun Showdown!

Producers Abby DePhillips and Kimberly Jenna Simon have created concerts which take your favorite Broadway songs and update them in amazing ways. How? By changing up some pronouns and fabulous music direction by Benjamin Rauhala. Who knew that one tiny word swap could make the audience look at a popular song in a brand new way?

A concert was set to be held this month at Feinstein's 54 Below but has been postponed over to July. In the meanwhile, catch up with your favorite Broadway stars singing their hearts out to these brand new classics!
