Your mom is doing it. Your grandma is doing it. Even your dog i s doing i t. Everyone we know is accepting the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and our favorite Broadway stars are no exception. The casts of Newsies, Once and Les Miserables and more got in on the action, and they’ve nominated even more Broadway shows (hey Kinky Boots, Matilda, Cabaret, Hedwig, Motown, Aladdin, Pippin and Phantom, we’re waiting!) to join the challenge. Watch the videos below, then check back to see more Broadway stars freezing their butts off for a great cause!
Huge bonus points go out to the adorable newsboys for taking their shirts off. For the cause! Yeah, for the cause...
Of course Once’s challenge looks like a freaking folk music video. Bonus points for using the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS buckets.
THE BOOK OF MORMON
“Who wants to see some Mormons get wet with salvation?”
These guys definitely take the award for the most enthusiastic kiddos—they’re positively psyched about getting drenched and potential hypothermia!
THE LION KING
The cast of The Lion King adds all sorts of fun jungle noises to their challenge. Plus, the acoustics in the Minskoff Theatre breezeway are great!
