VIDEO: Matthew Morrison Visits Backstage LIVE with Richard Ridge- Watch Now!

Catch up with Matthew ahead of his concerts with Seth Rudetsky on June 13!

Seeing your favorite Broadway stars live on a Broadway stage may not be a reality for a while, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them live from your screen. BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge is keeping up with all of their latest projects on Backstage Live, bringing you in-depth interviews twice weekly.

Watch as he chats with Broadway favorite Matthew Morrison, who will soon join Seth Rudetsky for two very special concerts on Sunday, June 13 (3pm and 8pm).

"I can't believe it has taken me this long to do this!" said Matthew. "I'm so excited- Seth is such a champion for the arts and for the theatre community in general. I am so proud of him for this whole platform that he has created for himself and for all of the theatre lovers out there. The fact that he has also raised so much- I think it's close to $1M- for the Actors Fund, is just more than enough of a reason to do this"

What can fans expect from the show? "I have no idea! But in a good way! These things are always so impromptu! I have a list of songs that I've done, but I also have new songs. Right before the pandemic on March 13, I released my Disney album... I'm excited to sing some of those songs."
