Calling all Broadway fans! On May 11, some of Broadway’s best and brightest teamed up with Looped to bring us the *PERFECT* show for one night only. With inspiring acoustic performances from home and vocals that transported us to a front row seat in the theater, this exclusive concert-from-home raised over $3,000 for Give India, a nonprofit providing support of oxygen tanks and other critical needs in the fight against COVID-19.


Shoba Narayan from Wicked, Hamilton, and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Cometof 1812 (kind of an under-achiever if ya ask me!) welcomed a slew of notable talent to the stage for this show tunes lover’s dream night! Multi-platinum recording artist, Grammy and Tony Nominee, Josh Groban, and THE Ben Platt from Dear Evan Hansen even stopped by to show their support for the cause (let me just say, it was *tough* not to fangirl).

There was a ~beautiful~ sense of camaraderie in the chatroom that night, as fellow Broadway superfans were buggin’ out over all the incredible talent showcased. Jessie Mueller, the Tony Winner for Best Leading Actress in Beautiful, wowed us with her performance of “Way Over Yonder” by Carole King, and Hamilton’s Denée Benton graced us with “Make You Feel My Love” by the one and only Bob Dylan, to name a few personal faves.

 

Harmonies knew no borders, as performers even performed duets for us from miles apart, including Wicked’s Lindsay Heather Pearce and Sam Gravitte, Alex Finke (Come From Away) and Joe Carroll (Bandstand). We also enjoyed the company of Samantha Massell (Fiddler On The Roof), Ana Villafañe (On Your Feet!), Ali Ewoldt (Les Misérables), Manu Narayan (Bombay Dreams), Erika Henningsen (Mean Girls), Brittain Ashford (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), Kennedy, Caughell (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Hamilton’s Nik Walker and Ryan Vasquez, and Molly Gordon (Booksmart). How was it even POSSIBLE to have that much talent in just one event?!
