It’s a Bikini Bottom Day in The Batter’s Box, as Ethan Slater joins us for Episode 99! Slater is a Tony-nominee and Drama Desk winner for his performance in the title role of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical. He recently just co-wrote the all-new musical Edge of the World which is now available via Broadway Records and is getting ready to go back on stage in Assassins this fall where he’ll play the role of Lee Harvey Oswald.
This week, Slater joins host Al Malafronte to discuss his phenomenal writing endeavors and the emotional journey that Edge of the World has taken him on since the pandemic hit. He’s also a big baseball fan going all the way back to his childhood and took us through how Cal Ripken Jr. has helped inspire him to be an “Iron Man” here on Broadway. This chat is the perfect blend of baseball and Broadway talk, as we also discussed Slater’s longtime passion for old baseball card collecting, his highs and lows as a Baltimore Orioles fan, and even the Jay Gibbons link in Wedding Crashers!
