The latest installment of R&H Goes Pop!-At Home features Broadway alum Aisha Jackson performing "A Lovely Night" from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. The video premieres above at 1 PM.
Jackson was last seen in on Broadway in Disney’s Frozen. During her run as the standby for Anna, she made history as the first Black woman to portray the role on Broadway. She made her Main Stem debut in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and was also part of the original Broadway cast of Waitress. Regional and Off-Broadway credits include Witness Uganda at American Repertory Theater (and later under the title Invisible Thread Off-Broadway), Once On This Island at Olney Theatre Center, A Bronx Tale: The Musical at Paper Mill Playhouse.
R&H Goes Pop!–At Home (previously R&H Goes Live!) is a spin-off of R&H Goes Pop!, hosted by two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Bonnie and Clyde, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella) and featuring contemporary takes on the Rodgers and Hammerstein catalog.
Previous live editions have included Jelani Alladin and Christiani Pitts dueting on "The Lady Is a Tramp" from Rodgers and Hart's Babes in Arms, Jeremy Jordan performing "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, and Christy Altomare singing "A Cockeyed Optimist" from South Pacific.
Additional performances have included Alladin and Matt Doyle singing "We Kiss in a Shadow" from The King and I (the pair reunited virtually in June to perform live in quarantine), Katrina Lenk performing "Something Good," and Ashley Park singing "Do-Re-Mi" from The Sound of Music.
