This yr was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck, a whirlwind of heat sewerage and festering refuse that left no one untouched. Any overview of 2020 will most likely be not less than a bit miserable, however not less than Jimmy Fallon’s musical abstract is catchy.
Huge Mouth‘s Andrew Rannells joined Fallon on Monday to recap 2020 in track, performing a set of Broadway musical parodies highlighting simply how completely rubbish the final 12 months have been. The tributes ran the gamut from The Sound of Music to Depraved to a Bye Bye Birdie Zoom name, showcasing musical theatre highlights alongside 2020 lowlights.
“I’m not throwing away my shot!” Rannells and Fallon sang, parodying Hamilton‘s “My Shot” as they skipped round with prop coronavirus vaccine needles. “Hey yo I belief Dr Fauci / It is just a bit ouchie / And I am not throwing away my shot!”
Weirdly, 2020: The Musical skips over the worldwide police brutality and racism protests that dominated the center of the yr. You’d assume it will not less than warrant a nod, notably since so lots of the exhibits referenced dealt immediately with race — together with Dreamgirls, Hairspray, and West Facet Story.
