Lesli Margherita & Taylor Louderman Bring Tangled to Life & It Was BEYOND

Amidst the craziness of BroadwayCon 2017 this weekend, Feinstein’s/54 Below welcomed back Laura Osnes and Ben Rauhala for another installment of their hit concert series, The Broadway Princess Party. By now you know the drill: Broadway's hottest young stars take the mic and live out their Disney fantasies and we all watch it obsessively on YouTube (if you haven’t seen Arielle Jacobs' “Just Around the Riverbend” open that in a second window now).
This latest Broadway Princess Party gave us the gift of “The Tangled Medley”, starring Kinky Boots’ new leading lady Taylor Louderman as Rapunzel and Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita serving Donna Murphy-plus realness as her wicked Mother Gothel singing “Mother Knows Best” (beginning at 2:15).
Confession: I’ve never seen Tangled so this first part is all new…and Taylor sounds beautiful as always.
(:48 seconds in)…Also, that one line made me think—when and where is Queen Lesli playing The Witch in Into the Woods?! Let’s get someone on that.

And my new most-used GIF is going to be...
You know I’m going to use this next B’day.
2:15: when the only song I know from Tangled begins.
That wig is giving me major Cher vibes.
Serious comedy queen, right here.
Selfie no filter
Taylor’s reactions are cracking me up too. These two make a great pair.

This is good for when I arrive and it’s open bar, when I find a lost $20 in a random pocket, or any other moment worth celebrating.
