THE BEST Musicals

Hamilton But It’s Muppets (Act 1)

Hamilton But It’s Muppets (Act 1)

With its release on Disney+, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit Hamilton is once again the talk of the town. Perhaps seeing a rainbow connection, Ricky Downes III recorded the entire first act of the musical in the voices of The Muppets. When Beaker started rapping, coffee came out of our nose. Now we need Act 2.

SNL: Airport Sushi

SNL: Airport Sushi

John Mulaney rounds out his Diner Lobster and Bodega Bathroom trilogy with another thing none of us should ever do – eat raw seafood at New York LaGuardia Airport, or for that matter, even fly out of the place. This time, Jake Gyllenhal and David Byrne come along and take that ride.

You’re the Funk That I Want

You’re the Funk That I Want

We’ve seen lots of productions of Grease over the years, but never one quite this hip. Vocalists Antwaun Stanley and Therese Curatolo join the funkmeisters of Scary Pockets for the grooviest duet of “You’re the One That I Want” we’ve ever heard.

That Song That No One Likes

That Song That No One Likes

“I’m sure they’d cut it, but the leads are backstage changing, and they need a lot of time…” If you’ve been to the theater to see a musical, you know exactly what Upright Citizens Brigade performer Sarah Smallwood Parsons is singing about in her hilarious parody of that one song that nobody cares about or remembers.

Microsoft the Musical

Microsoft the Musical

A group of interns working at Microsoft wanted to say thanks to the company that gave them a home for the summer and something good for their resumes. But what do you give the company that’s got everything – and on an intern’s budget? You put on a Broadway show, that’s what!

Us Cats

Us Cats

We’ve seen the trailer for the Cats movie musical, and the weird CGI cats just creep us out. Frankly, we think Ian Abramson’s version works much better, accompanied by Luniz’s I Got 5 on It, notable for its appearance in the trailer for Jordan Peele’s horror flick Us.

You’re The Choir That I Want

You’re The Choir That I Want

We’ve got chills, they’re multiplyin’… and you will too with this great group performance of the classic track The One That I Want from the 1970s musical Grease by the members of Toronto’s Choir! Choir! Choir! Danny and Sandy would be so proud.

The Bunny Incident

The Bunny Incident

A cast of 4th and 5th graders from Van Buren, Arkansas’ Parkland Elementary performed in this charming musical tribute to Star Trek, in which evil Klingons take the Easter Bunny hostage. Written, directed, and composed by teacher and Emmy winner Kevin Croxton.

Stage Fright (Red Band Trailer)

Stage Fright (Red Band Trailer)

(NSFW: Gore, Language) Meat Loaf rocks a mustache while attempting to manage a snooty performing arts camp being stalked by a musical-theatre hating, blood-thirsty killer, in Jerome Sable’s future camp classic Stage Fright.

In Summer

In Summer

A musical number from Disney’s animated flick Frozen, in which a snowman named Olaf longs for summertime fun. A catchy, Broadway-quality tune by Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit) and Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q).
