This week for his YouTube series Sundays on the Couch with George, George Salazar (Be More Chill) reunited with his Pasadena Playhouse Little Shop of Horrors co-star Mj Rodriguez (Pose) for a switched-up performance of the show's "Suddenly Seymour."

Twenty-three West End stars who have played either Elphaba or Glinda in the London production of Wicked gathered online to deliver a moving performance of "For Good" to support Make a Difference Trust's COVID-19 Emergency Appeal Fund. The organization offers help to theatre artists during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Although the 2020 Jimmy Awards have been canceled, alumni from the program's Class of 2018 offered them some inspiration with a group performance of "A Million Dreams" from The Greatest Showman.

As part of its Act Breaks series, the Old Globe has presented special performances and words of encouragement from actors, writers, directors, and other theatre creatives who have worked with the San Diego venue. In this video, Betsy Morgan, who had starred in the Old Globe's productions of Rain (2016) and The Tale of Despereaux (2019), performed the title song from The Sound of Music and reflected on the show tune's message of optimism.
