In our premiere episode of BROADWAY BESTIES we chat with stage favorites Tommy Bracco and Adam Kaplan. From reminiscing about Newsies memories to discussing their joint business called Lion Arts to teaching each other Yiddish and Italian, it’s impossible to not smile from ear to ear listening to this dynamic duo.
