Good Morning America recently paid tribute to Broadway's hidden heroes, the understudies, swings, and standbys who have been regularly taking the stage to allow plays and musicals all over the world to continue during the coronavirus pandemic that has temporarily sidelined many of the theatre's key players.

The ABC broadcast spotlighted three of the artists who have recently found themselves playing essential roles in major Broadway musicals: The Music Man's Kathy Voytko, Ain't Too Proud's Sir Brock Warren, and Aladdin's Angelo Soriano.
