The next entry from the R&H Goes Pop! series, featuring Broadway stars taking on new, pop-infused covers of classic Rodgers and Hammerstein showtunes, has been released.
Watch Jelani Alladin and Matt Doyle perform a same-sex version of “We Kiss in a Shadow” from The King and I in the video above.
Previous offerings in the series include Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan performing a mashup of Cinderella's "Ten Minutes Ago" and The Last Five Years' "The Next Ten Minutes” (watch here) and Jordan's solo cover of "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" from Oklahoma! (watch here). The series previewed earlier this year at BroadwayCon with a cabaret event that featured performances from Osnes, Derek Klena, Lilli Cooper, and more.
Alladin made his Broadway debut as Kristoff in the new Disney musical Frozen. Doyle has been seen on Broadway in War Horse, The Book of Mormon, Bye Bye Birdie, and Spring Awakening.
