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
Who doesn’t want a lesson in prefixes from a Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner? Rita Moreno was a regular on The Electric Company from 1971 to 1977, and in this crazy clip, she channels her inner Tina Turner in a song that teaches us all about using “un.” We’d be lying if we said we weren’t flailing our arms around along with these girls (seriously, though, that “America” choreography has nothing on this.)
LOOK OUT FOR...
A pre-Fame Irene Cara! First one on the left behind Moreno. Before singing the body electric, the Oscar winner got her start as a member of the Short Circus on the PBS program.
