Not too late to take a Broadway challenge for the Guinness World Records and help The Actors Fund help #saveourstages and #bringbackbway. It’s similar to the formerly viral #ALSicebucketchallenge. If we want to see our theatre community come back from the brink of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to come together. The mission is to save Broadway, as it has been closed since March 12, 2020, and the artists who make it happen from regional theaters to Times Square and to build awareness around a social media campaign to benefit The Actors Fund’s COVID-19 relief fund.
The Goal: To collect 5,000 video clips to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest online video album of people singing the same song. The song being used is FROM NOW ON from The Greatest Showman with special permission from both Pasek & Paul and the Disney Corporation. There is no deadline other than to reach the goal.
To record / upload your clip, go to ryco.org/bwayworldrecord. At the start of your video, be sure to challenge four of your friends and tag #broadwayworldrecord on social media.
So far some of the people you may know already aboard include Jay Armstrong Johnson, Alice Ripley, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Jessica Vosk.
