Over the last six weeks, more than 50 New York and touring theatre companies have raised $4,786,239 through the group Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. During that time, the group has released some cool videos that theatre fans are sure to love, like the Fun Home kids rapping about how you should give them money.
Or this one of Mrs. Brady getting seriously filthy.
But the latest takes the whole cake. Are you tired of hearing people talk about Hamilton, that show you haven’t seen and probably won’t get to for years and years (unless you live in New York— and soon Chicago— and have a lot of money or a lot of patience for daily lotteries)? Well, too bad! Because for the fundraising final event, Wayne Brady took his musical improvisation skills to the next level with an impromptu rap battle, and he invited Christopher Jackson and Lin-Manuel Miranda to join him. And they… well, they got the job done. Rapping about plotzing (which I had to Google), succubi, condoms, and UTIs, this is the coolest thing I’ve seen all week.
