Just last night, SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky hosted and music directed Not Since High School, a benefit concert that showcased Broadway performers singing the classic roles they played as teens while wearing braces and/or breaking out. Performers included Sierra Boggess, Mario Cantone, Jerry Dixon, Christine Ebersole, James Monroe Iglehart, LaChanze, Jose Llana, Jessie Mueller, Julia Murney, Emily Skinner, Keala Settle, and more.

Says Mr. Rudetsky, "When I was growing up, I was able to take chorus, chorale, special chorus, band, orchestra and theater. All part of the regular school day! Now public schools have cut most of the arts and they are only available after school with an incredibly limited budget. I wound up volunteering as the chorus teacher in my kid's middle school because they didn't have one. I want kids growing up today to have the same opportunities my generation had, or we'll miss out on the next generation of artistic titans. Kids won't know if they have talent as a musician, actor artist etc. if they don't have the chance to try it."
