While he was known by many as The Butcher of Broadway, Frank Rich is still considered to be one of the greatest critics who ever covered The Great White Way. Despite that savage moniker, he was, and is, a proud theater geek whose desire to collect obscure anecdotes and musicals makes him a kindred spirit to all of us. Frank pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how he first fell in love with the theatre, what it was like battling some of Broadway’s greatest names, and why David Merrick was a consistent source of frustration and inspiration! Also, Frank shines the spotlight on Stephen Sondheim, Arthur Gelb, and Wendy Wasserstein. Become a sponsor of Behind The Curtain and get early access to interviews, private playlists, and advance knowledge of future guests so you can ask the legends your own questions.
