SHOWS: The Band’s Visit, Tootsie, The Full Monty


One of Broadway’s greatest songwriters, Tony Award winning composer David Yazbek, hops on podcast to tickle your funny bone. David’s incredible career includes writing the scores to The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Band’s Visit, and Tootsie, as well as having been one of the industry’s most successful songwriters in just about every medium imaginable.


David pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how Allan Sherman influenced his work, what it was like working with David Letterman, and why all Broadway composers should take a break from listening to Broadway.


Also, David shines the spotlight on Patti LuPone, Jack O’Brien, and Carmen Sandiego.
