The Best Live Musical Theatre Performances

Don’t you always feel like curling up in bed and binge-watching musical theatre performances? I do…In fact, I do it very often, and I always start with these 10 videos. Let me be your gateway to the ”extra” side of YouTube…

Rose’s Turn Patti LuPone from Gypsy

 Patti LuPone or Bernadette Peters? Both versions are flawless, but Patti LuPone takes the crown for me!

 

Cell Block Tango, Broadway Backwards from Chicago

Chicago is one of my favourite musicals! And what a performance this is!!!

 

 

Glitter and Be Gay performed by Kristin Chenoweth from Candide (with the amazing Patti LuPone)

Kristin Chenoweth has one of the most powerful voices in musical theatre. Her performances are always effortlessly comical and breathtakingly powerful. She is amazing.

 

I Believe performed by Andrew Rannells from The Book of Mormon

Andrew Rannells was made for broadway. I wish he was cast in all my favourite musicals.

 

Willkommen performed by Alan Cumming from Cabaret

If I could have tea with any celebrity I would choose Alan Cumming. This role was made for him!

 

Memory performed by Elaine Paige from Cats

Classic. How could I not include Memory? This song always makes me cry.

 

Let Me Be Your Star performed by Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff

A dynamic duo!

 

BONUS: As a huge fan of Andrew Rannells, how could I not include his iconic mini-rendition of Let Me Be Your Star in Girls? Not live, but it’s worth being here!

 

 

I’d Give My Life For You performed by Eva Noblezada from Miss Saigon

Beautiful, heartbreaking, powerful.

 

The Phantom of the Opera performed by Sierra Boggess and Norm Lewis from The Phantom of the Opera

Norm Lewis is legendary in the role. Fun fact: all the views on this video come from me.

 

Hard Knock Life & Little Girls from Annie The Musical

I love Annie! Why doesn’ everyone love Annie. I could listen to the soundtrack all day.
