Throughout isolation, musical theatre stars have got together to recreate iconic musical numbers from their own home. We’ve put together a list of our favourite online performances of show-stopping songs that we all know and love.
When I Grow Up – Matilda the Musical
The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Matilda The Musical has released a beautiful video of some of the current young performers alongside Miss Honey (Gina Beck) singing the charming musical number When I Grow Up.
For Good – Wicked
23 leading ladies who have played either Elphaba or Glinda in the smash-hit musical Wicked got together to perform a moving rendition of For Good. This video is raising money for the Make A Difference Trust, which provides emergency funds for the theatre community.
Six & Ex Wives – Six the Musical
One of the most epic performances in isolation was when Six the Musical got fans of the show to join them in creating a huge global performance of Six and Ex Wives. Featuring over 3,000 Six super fans from across the globe and the worldwide cast – it’s a sensational celebration of the hit musical.
Over the Rainbow – The Wizard of Oz
It has been ten years since Andrew Lloyd Webber crowned the winner of hit series Over the Rainbow, so 11 of the finalists reunited for this touching performance. Watch the Dorothys perform alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber himself.
Bring Him Home – Les Mis
Former cast members of Les Mis, such as Alistair Brammer, Alfie Boe and John Owen-Jones get together alongside lots of familiar faces to perform Bring Him Home in celebration of our NHS.
The Show Must Go On
Do You Hear the People Sing? – Les Mis
In a triumphant performance featuring 70 musical theatre stars, this online rendition of Do You Hear The People Sing from Les Misérables is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine.
Mamma Mia – Mamma Mia the Musical
We love this hilarious performance of the title song Mamma Mia from Mamma Mia the Musical featuring the current West End cast of the show. It is truly joyous to watch.
From Now On – The Greatest Showman
Welsh West End stars have been getting together to create a multitude of online performances. We love this empowering musical number from The Greatest Showman featuring a phenomenal set of voices which is dedicated to NHS Wales and is accompanied by an all-Welsh band.
Somewhere – West Side Story
We couldn’t put a list of favourite online performances together without featuring our very own 2019 young cast of West Side Story. They all reunited to perform a stunning performance of Somewhere, reminding us of the beautiful show that took Birmingham’s breath away last summer.
