The 2019 summer interns at Microsoft got together (with some employees, 150 people in all) to make a Broadway-style musical about the company. These computer geeks are talented! Sure, a lot of it is high praise for Microsoft, but there’s some humor involved, too, because no one should be above poking fun at themselves… or their workplace.
“Microsoft the Musical” was dreamt up and led by interns spending the summer of 2019 at Microsoft. This Tony Awards-style musical theater opening number is just one of many passion projects that came to life because we were encouraged to bring our whole selves to work. And that’s what we did: 150 interns and employees came in on mornings, weekends, and nights to create this outside of (and in addition to) their day jobs.
Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We hope that this speaks to every person who dreams of being part of something big—and especially to those who’ve been wrongly told they can’t be. At some point, we were all in your shoes. You CAN, you SHOULD, and you WILL.
