BestArts Weekly Highlights - Anniversary Edition!


Happy Anniversary, BestArts!

In most cases, the Weekly Highlights section focuses on our favorite videos from other channels. However, in celebration of BestArts' one year anniversary, this week's selections are all from the BestArts channels.

This last year has been an amazing run. We're so appreciative of all our supportive viewers who've subscribed to our channels, watched (and rated and favorited) our videos and in many cases purchased the DVDs we highlight. I doubt there are many other families of channels on YouTube that host more than 300 videos where the average "favorite" count per video is over 100 and the average rating is over 4.9 of 5.


This Week's Selection Criteria

It was very hard to decide which of our 306 videos to feature in this special anniversary edition. Here's how we made our choices:

Best of BestArts
Great overview of our videos
Fosse
Compilation of one of the best musical theatre DVDs available
Pilobolus
Pilobolus videos are our most frequently viewed posts
Barbra/Judy Duet
Our most frequently favorited video - over 900 times
Down With Love
Our most frequently favorited video per viewer - if you watch it, you'll love it
Could I Leave You?
An undiscovered gem. Check out our other two versions of this song, too
Don't Mean A Thing
Most of our Sophisticated Ladies vids don't receive the views they deserve
August Rush
These three videos have proven hugely popular
Sister Act 2
Some of the best music ever from a recent movie
History Boys
Good music, great characters, partly gay storyline
Heather Headley
One of the most talented singers of her generation
22nd Anniversary
All Kevin and Steve...

Thank you, viewers. Please let us know how we can improve our channels or this website: .


NYC Events

We usually include a set of upcoming NYC events every week. This week, however, we're focusing on the BestArts channel itself - but couldn't ignore Pasek and Paul's show which we desperately wish we could attend. To find more upcoming events, see last week's schedule.

September 22: Benj Pasek & Justin Paul will play their first New York concert in two years as part of the NY Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) concert series! The boys take the stage at the Zipper Theater with some of the hottest young performers on Broadway, showcasing tons of new songs. Performers include Steven Booth (Avenue Q), Tituss Burgess (The Little Mermaid), Gavin Creel (Thoroughly Modern Millie), Mary Faber (Avenue Q), Chelsea Krombach (Wicked), Patina Miller (Hair), Krysta Rodriguez (In The Heights), Shayna Steele (Hairspray), Aaron Tveit (Wicked), Natalie Weiss (Ever After) and more.
