Kirsten Holly Smith (as Dusty Springfield) and Christina Sajous (as Dusty's lover, Claire), stars of the new musical Forever Dusty, have recorded a music video of "Baby It's Cold Outside," putting a new spin on the holiday classic. Michael Thomas Murray accompanies them on the piano.
The video, recorded on stage at New World Stages (where Forever Dusty opened on November 18, 2012), recreates a duet of "Baby It's Cold Outside" that Dusty Springfield performed with Rob McCuen in 1978. Check it out below!
