Both of us have been feverishly counting the days until I can fly out to the Big Apple and we can play tourist. One of the things we really want to do, of course, is see a show on Broadway. We've seen plenty of musicals in our time, but never on Broadway. So, that's a must.
That's where this blog post becomes relevant. What should we see? We know there are plenty of recommendations out there in the blogosphere — so let us know!
To coincide with my obsession of watching old American Idol (really, any talent or music show) performances on YouTube, I've come up with our top three Broadway musical performances seen on TV and not in the theatre.
• This man is simply amazing. You can see the fear in his eyes, but he sings this beautiful song from Les Miserable. What is up with the most random and shy people being amazing on Britain's Got Talent? It seems the American version never produces anything worthwhile.
• One Saturday, (again, I seriously love watching old American Idol performances), I showed Erin my top five favorite Idol performances of all time. David Cook's performance of The Music of the Night from The Phantom of the Opera made that list.
• And finally, this Broadway-related post can't be considered seriously without including a clip from Glee. Here is my favorite song from Wicked performed by Rachel and Kurt. (unfortunately, copyright doesn't allow to play the actual clip, but this homemade montage found on YouTube should suffice.)
