There's a sense I've tried to push down deep inside called anxiety What would help us beat the virus? If only we could. So try then we should! When I meet Corona My sense of smell will go first. And then I give Corona to my mom, strangers, a nurse. And with all its novel novelty It's very difficult so subside it Do you think Corona is dumb? Or a hoax like some have implied it? No! It'll say to me, "I want to infect you a lot Let's see you try to defy!" Well, we're at war it seems Corona and I Once we've faced Corona Daily life sure will change Cause after the Corona All have gone insane No people want to take a cruise A plane, a bus, or a train And all of us know the answer If we've been infected Then Trump's to blame And I wait for the worst With a lot on my mind Maybe it just takes some time For now I'll wash my hands Corona and I And one day it'll say to me, "Abby, New Yorker who likes outdoor activity Let's see you stay all cooped up inside As though you're stuck in captivity Although i'm tearing through the big cities Because you're in close proximities Would it be all right by you If I infect rural areas too?" "Okay, alright, you don't have to be mean Please, just stop" I reply Oh, let us all be spared Corona and I We all must be aware Corona and... Unlimited The virus is unlimited Yes, the future seems uncertain and unlcear I know It feels like we're losing But really we are choosing To stay at home and watch TV And soon it will be history Let's fight and not retreat And then life after the virus Will still be difficult as hell We can't just throw a penny Down into a wishing well And so we will wait for the curve to decline And have a good Corona cry Oh that's a nice cool breeze When people see me they won't sneeze It will be over, I decree Corona will die!

Will they have frozen broccoli? Oh, at least people are being kind It won’t last for too much more time (Who will go get groceries) You stay inside, I’ll go get groceries

Follow @abbygoldfarb on Instagram for more! ***It may be old news by now, but it's never too late to reiterate that disinfectants should not be ingested or injected like the president's "sarcastic" comments suggested. This whole situation is a Little Shop of Horrors! LYRICS Cover your cough Sneeze into your elbow Go get some Clorox Clean off your phone While tidying up If you start to get hungry With worrying mounting Please cook yourself food Don’t eat disinfectants They will not cure you In fact they are poison When served on a plate Don’t eat disinfectants The CDC thanks you They’re made to clean bathrooms You won’t feel great When I was younger I learned this lesson My parents taught me What was for food But then I heard Trump “sarcastically” speaking About some injections and Now I’m confused Suddenly sunlight Might be the answer Perhaps UV rays can Be put inside too Don’t eat disinfectants I understand you They are for objects A vaccine’s for flu Glad things are clear And you won’t be ingesting Listen to doctors who know what to do Now when I hear more “sarcastic” directions I’ll look just as traumatized as Dr. Birx Don’t eat disinfectants (I won’t eat disinfectants) They will not cure you (They will not cure me) In fact they are poison (They are poison) When served on a plate (Served on a plate) Don’t eat disinfectants (I won’t eat disinfectants) The CDC thanks you (The CDC thanks me) They’re made to clean objects They’re made to clean objects They’re made to clean objects You know it’s true (I know its true)

Go pour your wine Get up to stand Now sit back down you must be tired post some content to inspire It’s worth admitting, I’ll tell you the truth This all won’t just go away Stay on your couch today, old chum Eat dinner on a tray I watch the news to learn how to stay healthy And only like to hear from Dr. Fauci… And Cuomo, Gupta, Cooper, Tapper, Lemon They talk and talk until around eleven. At seven I can hear the woos and cheering Is it possible that’s what I could be hearing? New Yorkers showing love as one big team Together for a moment so it seems I am inspired with some hope and fight Do your part, and do it really right Are you still sitting alone on your couch? It isn’t hard to obey. Stay in your house, today, you bum Or maybe go write a play! And as for me And as for me I have a couch, two chairs, a queen bed I’m not succumbing to this deep dread Summer is coming The sun will still rise Corona will fade away Life is no big parade, old chum It’s more like a masquerade, old chum So stay on your couch TODAY

Broadway in Yiddish? - Joel Grey and Fiddler on the Roof at Easter Bonnet Competition 2019
At the 2019 Easter Bonnet Competition, the award for best presentation went to the cast of Off-Broadway’s Fiddler on the Roof - in Yiddish, which asked the question, “What if other Broadway classics were translated into Yiddish?” Their answer was a side-splitting medley of the Yiddish versions of The Book of Mormon, Chicago, Dreamgirls, Hamilton, Legally Blonde, South Pacific, West Side Story and Wicked, culminating with the show’s legendary director, Joel Grey, singing “Git op mayn grus tsu Brodvey” (“Give my regards to Broadway”) from George M!. The skit was written by cast members Ben Liebert and Adam B. Shapiro with Yiddish lyrics by Mikhl Yashinsky. Records were shattered and inspiring, comical and soul-stirring performances were shared at the 33rd annual Easter Bonnet Competition, which raised $6,594,778 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the highest amount ever for a Broadway Cares event. The record-breaking number was raised by 69 Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring productions and was announced Tuesday, April 23, 2019, by Bryan Cranston (Network), Jeff Daniels (To Kill a Mockingbird), Glenda Jackson (King Lear) and Kelli O’Hara (Kiss Me, Kate). The previous record was $6,379,572, set in 2017. Since the Easter Bonnet Competition began in 1987, the event has raised $87.5 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
