The amazingly talented Shoshana Bean mostly known for her time on the Broadway stage as Elphaba (Wicked), took the time to include a medley of songs written for roles she will never play. Among those titles are some genuine classics including, Sarah Brown Eyes (Ragtime), Be a Lion (The Wiz) and Easy as Life (Aida). Her voice carries this group of songs so well. Watch the video to see the performance in its entirety with several other musical selections. The footage filmed during her time on the Broadway Cruise, Seth Rudetsky is on piano.
