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.

"A Weekend in the Country" from A Little Night Music (Robert Creighton, Kyle Dean Massey, Jake Boyd, Mo Brady, Daniel Breaker, Ward Billeisen and Broadway Backwards company)

Ulterior Motives: We've got a double header for you! In 1973, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's romantic musical A Little Night Music opened on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre. Yesterday, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS announced their annual concert being presented virtually this year Broadway Backwards Tuesday March 30th at 8pm EST. The special edition stars Jay Armstrong Johnson and Jenn Colella and will include appearances by Stephanie J. Block, Matt Bomer, Deborah Cox, Darren Criss, Ariana DeBose, Robin De Jesús, Cynthia Erivo, Joshua Henry, Cherry Jones, Kelli O'Hara, Jim Parsons and Lea Salonga. We found the perfect clip to celebrate the two. Make sure to mark your calendars for March 30th for this fantastic annual concert.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: We love Robert Creighton as Petra. The enthusiasm, the joy, the acting beats it's awesome. Kyle Dean singing Anne's track, the attitude, finding each laugh line - so smart. The whole cast is fantastic. Our ultimate moment though is Anything Goes' Ward Billeisen's BEAUTIFUL tenor at 4:58 - 5:29. He is serving old school Hollywood vocal placement you would hear in any Golden Age movie or Broadway musical. We paused and thought - wait we need to listen to that one more time!
