Feeling Jewish and left out of the Christmas season? Look no farther than this performance by Harrison Chad, who starred as Noah in the original Broadway production of Caroline or Change... of "The Chanukah Party", from the show... where he plays every single character. His quick way with the song's lyrics and boisterous cheery execution will get you in the holiday spirit right away, no matter what religion you are. What a charmer. Happy (belated) Hanukkah!!
Have you ever wanted to sneak behind the curtain of some of Broadway's greatest hits, including Wicked, Rent, and A Chorus Line?
