Passengers with delayed flights at LaGuardia Airport in New York City got an unexpected show earlier this week. Also waiting out the heavy rainfall were the Broadway casts of “Aladdin” and “The Lion King,” including Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart and Backstage cover star Adam Jacobs.

To pass the time, the actors performed impromptu renditions of “The Circle of Life” and “Arabian Nights,” and Iglehart dropped an impressive freestyle to the tune of Black Star’s “Lions of Hip-Hop.”
