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
We love every single second of The Judy Garland Show, but this 1964 clip of Chita Rivera singing “I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’” is just magical. It reminds us why Rivera has two Tony Awards. It reminds us why she’s our personal hero. And most of all, it reminds us why beehive wigs should definitely make a comeback.
LOOK OUT FOR...
