News   THE SCREENING ROOM: Our Favorite Performances From the Cast of the Upcoming Broadway Backwards (Video)
The annual Broadway Backwards concert — featuring male singers performing songs traditionally sung by women and women singing tunes written for men —will be presented March 5 at 8 PM at Broadway's Al Hirschfeld Theatre.

The star-studded lineup includes Tony Award winners Betty Buckley (Cats) and LaChanze (Color Purple), Tony Award nominees Adam Pascal (Memphis) and Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon) as well as Jackie Hoffman (The Addams Family), Jessie Mueller (On a Clear Day You Can See Forever), Sierra Boggess (Master Class, Love Never Dies) and Telly Leung (Godspell), among many others.

With all the talent set to hit the stage of the Al Hirschfeld, couldn't resist searching the web for our favorite performances from the 2012 Broadway Backwards lineup.

Pascal, who was nominated for a Tony Award in 1996 for his performance in Rent, singing "One Song Glory":

Buckley, a Tony winner for Cats and a Tony nominee for Triumph of Love, belting out Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Memory":

Rannells, who was nominated for his performance as Elder Price in the Tony Award-winning hit The Book of Mormon, singing "I Believe" at the 2011 Tony Awards:

Boggess, who created the role of Ariel in The Little Mermaid (also her Broadway debut), performing "Part of Your World":

Leung, currently performing "All Good Gifts" in the Broadway revival of Godspell, sang "Home" from The Wiz. Maybe he'll reprise his performance for Broadway Backwards!

Mueller, who made her Broadway debut this season in the revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, performed "Ev'ry Night at Seven" in that musical—a breakout performance for the Broadway newcomer!

LaChanze, who won a Tony Award for her performance in The Color Purple, was nominated in 1991 for Once on This Island. Here, she sings "Waiting For Life" at a benefit concert held in 2002 at the Winter Garden Theatre.

Hoffman, who has been seen on Broadway in Hairspray, Xanadu and The Addams Family, covered Taylor Swift's "Love Story"—perfection.
