BREAKING NEWS: Due to reports of new rules and regulations being changed to Instagram with copyrights in using music on daily lives, Musical Theatre West's popular GAME NIGHT with Eden Espinosa and Kamilah Marshall (a.k.a. THE BAIDA SHOW) was abruptly forced to end its usual Thursday Night Instagram Lives. Tonight marked as the final INSTAGRAM Live episode after 20 weeks.
Luckily, the ICONIC party is not yet over. Before starting their game for the night, the WICKED and Hairspray alumnis announced that GAME NIGHT will be moving to ZOOM beginning next month. However, it will only happen ONCE a month (till the end of the year). For the ZOOM editions, it will be a fundraiser for Musical Theatre West with $5-$10 donations to join in the fun. In addition, the viewers at home will be able to interact and play along with both Eden and Kamilah themselves FACE TO FACE!!!! With everyone on the ZOOM, viewers will be put onto teams or compete against each other in a serious a fun Broadway Trivia Games along with these real life Broadway BFF Powerhouses.
Th first ZOOM edition of GAME NIGHT for October will be announced in a few weeks.
In case anyone may not be familiar, GAME NIGHT features Espinosa and Marshall (also both alumni cast members of the Broadway company of RENT) competing against each other in a series of Musical Theater Themed Trivia Games. Every week features a different game. Some previous ones they've done include….
NAME THAT TUNE,
THE WHISPER GAME (which notably Espinosa and Marshall ended up creating the official nickname for Game Night…. BAIDA),
FIRST LETTER, LAST LETTER,
Along with the viewers getting involved and interacting during the Lives, GAME NIGHT also features a hilarious drinking game. Before they actually start playing, both powerhouses will choose a random "word of the day" (several words in previous episodes include HURRY, DRAW, PERSON, JOY, or EASY). Everytime one of them says that chosen word while playing their games, you better DRINK FOR YOUR LIFE. Also in the comment section, share an emoji to let them know you're drinking.
If you are enjoying the fun, you can also get the official GAME NIGHT merch on the Musical Theatre West website.
Thank you Eden and Kamilah for keeping everyone's spirits up during this continued weird and uncertain time. You both are truly ICONIC!!!
