Theatre Thursday #4
Amidst all the chaos of this week (of both the heart-wrenching and heart-warming variety), the theatre world granted us a tiny gift: The Original Broadway Cast of "Hadestown" performing an NPR Tiny Desk Concert. They performed five songs from last year's Tony Award-winning musical: Way Down Hadestown, Come Home With Me/Wedding Song, When The Chips Are Down, Flowers, and Why We Build The Wall. You can watch it here:
Though this week's puzzle deals with a different musical, I hope both elements of this post can bring a little bit of light to your day.
PS: In breaking "Hairspray" news, the creators of the musical just decided to edit out a loophole in the licensing agreement, making it required for the show to be cast as written -- with black performers cast in the black roles.
