How badly does the cast of "Motown" wish they were the cast of "The Lion King" right now?
As the Internet knows, last week, a phone video of two Broadway casts having an airport singoff when their flights were delayed went crazy viral. Now, conveniently, there's a video of the cast of Motown singing and dancing through the aisles of an airplane. This one seems to have professional shooting and editing, a choreographed routine, and a "cameo" from Virgin Group founder Richard Branson. It's housed on Virgin Atlantic's YouTube page, because this is an airplane commercial.
The performers are wonderful, though. Hopefully they'll get to star in a less corporate viral video one day. Until then, they'll just have to settle for being awesome on Broadway.
