On November 26th, BroadwayUnderstudies invited some of Broadway's most talented understudies to the stage of the Laurie Beechman Theatre to share their rare talent-the ability to perform at a second's notice. They were thrown into the fire in "Half Hour 2: A Last Minute Concert," a show where even they didn't know what they'd be singing before they step up to the microphone. The audience got to vote on what song each performer would sing. Check out highlights from the concert below!
Performers included: Nikki Bohne (Bring it On), Ariana DeBose (Bring it On), Kate Fahrner (Wicked), Russell Fischer (Jersey Boys), Jennifer Foster (If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet), Alyssa May Gold (Arcadia), Haley Hannah (Bring it On), David Hull (Wicked), Jesse JP Johnson (Wicked), Janet Krupin (Bring it On), Stephanie Martignetti (Nice Work If You Can Get It), Eddie Pendergraft (Wicked), Teddy Toye (Bring it On), and J Michael Zygo (Once). F. Michael Haynie (Wicked) served as guest host for the evening.
The concert was produced by Shoshana Feinstein with musical direction by Benjamin Rauhala, and featured Jeremy Yaddaw on drums and Charlie Rosen on bass.
