Jimmy Fallon is bringing Broadway back to “Late Night” with performances from five different musicals every night next week.

Broadway Week will run from Feb. 20-24, beginning on Monday with a performance by Nick Jonas from the musical comedy “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying.” Not so coincidentally, Jonas is also slated to appear as a guest star on NBC’s “Smash” on Feb. 27.

Other performances include:
David Alan Grier drops by on Tuesday to perform a song from The Gershwins’ “Porgy and Bess.”
The cast of the upcoming “Ghost The Musical” visits on Wednesday. The show is based on the famed 1990 Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore film and opens this spring.
Thursday night’s show will feature Roundabout Theatre Company’s 2011 Tony Award-winning musical “Anything Goes” featuring Sutton Foster.
Finally, a song from the Whoopi Goldberg produced “Sister Act” hits the stage on Friday.

Of course, Fallon is known for his own musical numbers, ranging from the Emmys to the Super Bowl, which you can watch in the clip below…
