You have may have seen videos floating around the internet of people frozen mid-action with “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background. The latest viral sensation, the #MannequinChallenge, has everyone from the Pittsburgh Steelers to Michelle Obama, Ellen DeGeneres, and members of the Black Lives Matter movement freezing for a moment in time. (It’s believed that the gimmick started in October with students in Jacksonville, FL.)
Well, Broadway has gotten in on the action.
