"So thankful for Seth and James and #starsinthehouse raising money for the Actors' Fund. I love all the wonderful Broadway stars singing from their homes. Highlight: Stephanie J. Block's gorgeous version of Holding to the Ground." -Kristina B. on Facebook

"Lea Salonga in Once on This Island. It was a lifelong dream to see her perform live and meeting her after the performance made my decade. I had never in my adult life been speechless until I tried to tell her what her performance and meeting her meant to me." -@jansen5678 on Twitter

"Ramin Karimloo as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables. His performance brought tears to my eyes. He was incredible. He made the experience of seeing my favorite show live even more special. I'll never forget it." -@jen_holdstock on Twitter

"Wicked because that was the first show I saw and it made become obsessed with broadway" -@zoe_kistler on Twitter

"I'm most thankful for Aint' Too Proud's performance last year (yay there's gonna be another one this year) because it gives hope to young artists of color that they'll have a place in the arts and that they can play actual people, not just a thug or a slave or a bellhop." -@contecameron1 on Twitter
