Travelers at New York’s LaGuardia Airport got an unexpected treat when a flight delay left the casts of Broadway shows Aladdin and The Lion King stranded together for six hours. Instead of letting the inconvenience get them down, they passed the time doing what they do best: putting on a show.

Videos shared on Reddit show the large group of Broadway performers belting out show-stopping numbers from the Tony Award-winning Disney musicals including “The Circle Of Life” from The Lion King. Later in the video, James Monroe Iglehart, who won a Tony for playing the Genie in Aladdin, steals the impromptu show with a freestyle rap about the two casts’ predicament. Iglehart previously performed in the casts of Hamilton, Chicago, and Hercules on Broadway in addition to working in television and movies.
