While we’re all sitting at home running out of things to clean and skills to learn (I cut my own hair earlier this week), we continue to look to the internet and social media to keep our sanity intact and our spirits up. One of the newest (and potentially greatest!) pieces of entertainment Broadway Spin has discovered is The Show Must Go On Show. It’s fun. It’s smart. And it’s the perfect length of time to finish one glass of wine.
This 15-minute variety show is here to bring all kinds of creatives together to talk about how they’re dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, but with an uplifting tone. While this show will feature Broadway performers and other industry stars, it will also bring on experts from different fields such as culinary, science, and more! You can even be featured yourself if you submit what you’re up to during this time! Sadly, I did not film my self-haircut.
Creators Andy Truschinski and Howie Michael Smith will be co-hosting the show on YouTube every Tuesday at 7pm EST starting TONIGHT! Get ready to see special guests James Monroe Inglehart (of Aladdin and Hamilton fame), Andrew Bancroft, and Anthony Veneziale from the show Freestyle Love Supreme (as well as the Freestyle Love Supreme Academy which should be on everyone’s bucket list), plus Dr. Anthony Weiner MD and Minita Gandhi who is a meditation expert.
The Show Must Go On Show will also be showcasing a different charity every week, starting with The Actors’ Fund for tonight’s premiere episode. If you have a charity in mind that you’d like to see them to support, they’ve asked that you send it their way. Follow them on Instagram to stay up-to-date on the latest!
Their slogan sets the stage better than we ever could: “Tune in each week for new episodes as we escape the shadows of this pandemic and build towards the light of community, caring and creativity.”
