Video Roundup: When pop goes the stage

In the annual UnCovered concert at Acting Up Stage, we take beloved pop and rock music and transform it into something straight out of Sondheim or Gershwin.

In celebration of this year’s UnCovered: Billy Joel & Elton John, here’s a list of some pop-inspired Broadway musicals. Have more to add to the list? Let us know in the comments! More

And of course, not even the boundaries of Broadway are impenetrable by the joy of a good meal.

Check out this feast of musical morsels dedicated to one of our very favourite topics - food, glorious food! More
