Following the Wicked parody inspired by COVID-19 it would seem that others stuck at home have busy so we've decided to post some of the other musical inspired covid-19 parodies that have been drawn to our attention.

To remind you of the Wicked parody everyone seemed to enjoy on the weekend.

First up The Sound Of Music as Maria teaches the Von Trapplings how to deal with the pandemic in this new take on Do Re Me by Shirley Serban.

Following the smash-hit Wicked Parody, Gina Naomi Baez is back with her Six parody Persist! – the quarantine mix.

Randy Rainbow uses classic musical Guys and Dolls for The Coronavirus Lament. Move over Miss Adelaide.

Tony Award nominee Susan Egan (Broadway's original ‘Belle' in “Beauty and the Beast,” the voice of ‘Megara' in Disney's animated film “Hercules”), two-time Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes (Broadway's original “Cinderella,” star of “Bandstand,” “Bonnie and Clyde”), and Grammy nominee Courtney Reed (Broadway's original ‘Jasmine' in “Aladdin,” star of “Cambodian Rock Band,” “In The Heights”) sing “Keep Your Distance,” a parody of the “Hercules” classic “Go The Distance,” with new lyrics by Jonathan Larson Award winner Amanda Yesnowitz


Since Bohemian Rhapsody does feature in the musical We Will Rock You we allowed this Coronavirus Rhapsody with vocals by Adrian Grimes and lyrics by Dana Jay Bein.
