Shows: La Cage Aux Folles, Gypsy (1974 & 1989), Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Tony Award winning producer Barry Brown has given the world such musicals as La Cage Aux Folles, the revivals of Gypsy with Angela Lansbury and Tyne Daly, Platinum, and so many more. As if that were not enough, his desire to help those with AIDS led to the creation of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which is still helping thousands across the country.  Barry pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how Arthur Laurents was a “creative” writer, what it was like getting Bebe Neuwirth introduced to Velma Kelly, and why Dolly Parton saved his career! Also, Barry shines the spotlight on Fritz Holt, Angela Lansbury, and George Hearn!  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.
