Goodness gracious, #OnTheTown-ers! A storm's a-coming! With many organizations closing and canceling performances tonight, a parking ban in effect, and the MBTA closing at its usual time, how on earth are you supposed to get out #OnTheTown and enjoy the fine arts in Boston?! Never fear, Kyle Thomas is here and Opus Affair has you covered. Here, for your viewing pleasure, are some of my favorite arts YouTube clips! You can go out #OnTheTown without leaving the comfort of your bed, your liquor, or the french toast ingredients you're hoarding in your kitchen.

It would be absolutely swell if everyone shared their go-to arts YouTube clips in the comments section, as well! Looking forward to seeing what everyone shares!

Who doesn't love this viral clip of Rachele Gilmore's dramatic Met Opera debut, singing debatably the highest note ever sung on the Met stage!

How could I do such a round-up and not include Patti Lupone?! Here she is in her legendary cabaret act at Les Mouches singing "Meadowlark" from The Baker's Wife.

And finally, from the 1968 Tony Awards, Donna McKechnie and company in "Turkey Lurkey Time" from Promises, Promises (And don't forget to check out the inimitable Seth Rudetsky deconstructing this performance, as well!).

Bonus! Just for shits and giggles, here's Miss Arkansas 1994 singing "And I Am Telling You" from Dreamgirls, although maybe not the version you were expecting...
