In one of the most versatile careers on record, Richard Jay-Alexander has pretty much done it all. Starting first as a PA on Broadway, then moving his way up to stage manager, it was his collaboration with uber-producer Cameron Mackintosh where Richard really thrived, becoming the Associate Director and Executive Producer of a new show called Les Miserables. Together, they led the revolution of how a Broadway musical is produced and viewed by global audiences. As if that wasn’t enough, Richard is the foremost “diva whisperer”, having directed the concerts of Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, Kristen Chenoweth, and countless others. Now, he is sitting down with Rob and Kevin to look back on it all. Richard pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how best to create and direct a one person show, what it was like seeing Les Miserables for the first time (grab tissues for this one), and why honesty is always the best policy…..always! Also, Richard shines the spotlight on Lea Salonga, Norm Lewis, and Bernadette Peters!
