People from all over are stepping up to partake in the Ice Bucket Challenge, and that includes stars of the Great White Way. We've seen the casts of some of Broadway's biggest hits get wet to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Association. Now, check out some Tony winners, stage and screen legends and a Broadway.com video blogger get frigid for the cause! And, as many of them don't nominate anyone in particular, that means it's now officially your turn.
It’s one thing to have a giant tub of ice water poured on you. It’s another to do it in front of thousands of people. But to also wear an Evita-esque ball gown for it? We haven’t seen that before!
We find it adorable that Cannavale and Rose Byrne filmed each other, and used the same flashy pot. We’re also very glad that he finally figured out how to post the video, after some public frustration.
Neil Patrick Harris
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! The Hedwig Tony winner took to his stoop, and with the help of his family, stepped up to the plate to raise awareness for ALS. We love how his kids cling to him, but once that bucket’s over his head, they’re nowhere to be found.
Talk about smooth. Smoother than a whiskey on the rocks. Without a single word, the stage and screen icon reminds us of all the good this movement has brought.
How can one be so charming in just 13 seconds while pouring water on themselves? Also, did you hear that she’s on Nashville?! You know, just in case you couldn’t read her t-shirt. But wait, who did you nominate, Laura? Patti LuPone? DID YOU NOMINATE PATTI LUPONE?!
Broadway.com vlogger accepted the nomination from our own Paul Wontorek, but added his own twist, giving If/Then fans an opportunity to ice him at the stage door. Things get weird around the 3:15 mark when the ice goes down his shirt (and uh, his pants). First vlogger Ramin Karimloo, now Snyder. Sierra Boggess and James Monroe Iglehart, we’re waiting.
Alan Cumming (and the cast of Cabaret)
The Tony winner gathered up some boys and girls of the Kit Kat Klub to fight ALS, Studio 54 style. Ever-so-conscious of the ecological concerns of water conservation, they all huddled together (half naked, we might add) to get drenched.
