Hot Clip of the Day: Easy To Be Captivated by Broadway's Caissie Levy Singing This HAIR Tune
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.
"Easy To Be Hard" from Hair (Caissie Levy)
Ulterior Motives: A Happy Hippie Birthday to the starshine herself, Caissie Levy. We love seeing this splendid lady on Broadway in shows conjuring ice palaces as Elsa in Frozen, singing unchained melodies in Ghost, going green in Wicked, dreaming a dream as an incredible Fantine in the recent Les Misérables revival and of course Sheila in one of our favorite Broadway revivals of all time Hair. Until we see Caissie return to Broadway as Rose Stopnick Gellman in the Roundabout Theatre Company Broadway revival of Caroline, or Change, enjoy this beautiful clip of the star singing her heartwrenching tune in concert at London's Leicester Square Hippodrome.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Caissie is such an honest actress and you can experience it in this performance. This number is captivating. Our ultimate moment is 1:49 - 2:14. In the span of a few seconds, Caissie brings the intimate number to another level using her gorgeous voice to sing out her character's frustrations only to a few seconds later bring audiences right back in to that stunning quiet part of her voice. We use the word a lot but friends - this is magic! Happy birthday Caissie!
