We are in the room with frequent correspondent and friend of the podcast Natalie Joy Johnson (Kinky Boots! Legally Blonde!) for our year end wrap up! We cover some of our favorite movie & tv moments of the year, talk about our ideal mugshot attire, and get personal with the Day Planner Game! We get into the realness, so we suggest adhering to the 2 drink minimum. Cheers to kicking 2017 to the curb, and see you weirdos in 2018!
For your holiday listening pleasure, the Broadwaysted crew have combined all three parts of their star-studded radio play with a special bonus: a hilarious gag reel! Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
100 Guests. 200 Favorite Things. What started as a dream has evolved into one of the industry’s longest-running celebrations of the history of American Musical Theatre. To celebrate their 100th episode, Rob and Kevin get the tables turned on them and are asked to look back on Behind the Curtain: Broadway’s Living Legends by the one and only Robbie Rozelle. Rob and Kevin reveal how they met, why they started the podcast, and what the future might hold for the show. Plus, they reveal their favorite interviews, their most embarrassing moments, and never before heard stories about themselves and their guests. And, of course, they debate George Furth dialogue, Goulet sings Dear Evan Hansen, Kevin’s love of RuPaul, and so much more in this hysterical retrospective.
