Laura Benanti, Jeremy Jordan, Laura Osnes, and Many More Take on the Russian Broadway Shutdown

In this satirical video, members of the Russian Broadway community (read: your favorite stars with silly Russian accents) respond to their government's inevitable expansion of the anti-homosexual propaganda law.

Don't be fooled. As far as we can tell, the Russian government's anti-homosexual propaganda law still hasn't extended so far as to ban all musical-theater performances. Nevertheless, this satirical video, featuring stars like Jonathan Groff, Andrew Rannells, Harvey Fierstein, Annaleigh Ashford, Victoria Clark, Jeremy Jordan, Roger Rees, Laura Osnes, and the polar bear fish tank at The Russian Tea Room, is hilarious.

Stephanie J. Block and Laura Benanti play lesbian cosmonauts, so it's totally worth it.
