Josh Groban recounts being laughed out of the room for his try at Sweeney Todd, Idina Menzel shares the secret of her Wicked outburst, Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. reveals the song he always auditions with, and Hugh Jackman admits that his run for the musical Beauty and the Beast forced him into singing lessons. Watch for these stories and more.
