We are live and in the room with the iconic Kathy Deitch! (Wicked! Footloose! Magic Mike! American Horror Story!). She also has a Heart tribute band called “All Heart.” Could she be any cooler?? Well we find out. We are out of our minds for this woman! Join us as we catch up on the shows we’ve seen recently, growing up in Philly, learning how to stay safe whilst using your instrument, the joys of telemarketing, online dating, Hollywood’s impact on Broadway, getting real about plus size visibility and here-I-am-ness, LA vs NYC, working with powerhouse performers, and the new show she’s in called Titanique!
Play along as Will Roland (Dear Evan Hansen & Be More Chill) comes back to join Bryan, Kevin, and Kimberly for gin and tonics, broadway talk, theatre games, bad puns, MANCAN, and Tanteo tequila.
Stop the presses…….literally! One of Broadway’s most respected press agents, Joshua Ellis, has the spotlight shifted from his glittering clientele and focused firmly on him in this delightful interview which covers some of the 100 plus shows Joshua has worked on including Into the Woods, 42nd Street, Lena Horne: The Lady and her Music, The King and I, Morning’s at Seven, and The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. Joshua pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how Barbra Streisand and Yul Brynner shared a clandestine car trip, what it was like working for the wily David Merrick, and why Carol Channing is the savviest person in show business! Also, Joshua shines the spotlight on Eva LeGallienne, Eartha Kitt, and Ethel Merman.
