Some people handle flight delays by having total meltdowns or relentlessly stalking the customer service counter, but the cast of Broadway musicals Aladdin
and The Lion King
made much more creative use of their recent stint in airport hell. While waiting out a six-hour weather delay at LaGuardia Airport, some of the actors showcased their vocal skills in an impromptu a cappella sing-off
, treating lucky onlookers to a free show. The lack of costumes, bright stage lights and music didn't take away from their powerful performance, which was so amazing they should probably earn some overtime pay.
After a spine-chilling rendition of The Lion King
's "Circle of Life," Tony Award-winner James Monroe Igleheart
, who plays the Genie in Aladdin
, fired back with an energetic, off-the-cuff rap that got the crowd hyped up for another round. He then led his co-stars into "Arabian Nights," which made for a major mic-dropping moment. Despite the stiff competition, you could totally feel the love between the opposing casts.
This sing-off has us thinking that it could be pretty awesome if airports hired professional singers to entertain passengers during flight delays.
In the meantime, let's address the tough question: Which cast deserves the title of airport sing-off champs?
