Beth Malone recreated her Tony Award nominated performance from Fun Home recognizing Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron, the first female writing team to win the Tony Award for Best Original Score. Heather Headley brought down the house with "What I Did for Love" from A Chorus Line. Hits from Showboat, The Fantasticks, South Pacific, and West Side Story were also performed.
