We’re gonna be honest: Things around the Broadway.com offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Broadway.com Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in!
WHY WE LOVE IT
Before these two visionaries (Emily Cara Portune and Ryan Malyar) even begin to hoof, we’re treated to the fabulousness that is their gold and turquoise ensemble. But really, nothing says “murderous barber” like shuffle-ball-changes, paradiddles and ill-conceived leg lifts. And it’s not just a dance routine. It’s full-on performance art. After wowing us with their moves, they proceed to salt and pepper a giant construction paper egg and lick it. Maybe it’s a metaphor for the show’s portrayal of revenge and government corruption? Yeah, probably that.
LOOK OUT FOR...
1:25. If there’s anything that can upstage a Sweeney Todd tap dance, it’s a horrifying Easter bunny and a demon pizza baby. Obviously.
