Grab your dinglehoppers and your snarfblats, because on this episode of E-Ticket to Broadway, David is joined by the one and only Jodi Benson! Star of “The Little Mermaid,” Crazy for You, and Smile, Jodi shares her world of Disney–from growing up loving Cinderella, to her experience with Ariel, to going to the Parks with her family. Listen as this Disney Legend reflects upon the lyrics of the incredible Broadway showtune “Disneyland,” and how she become an honorary citizen of that magical place–Jodi is the ambassador of finding joy and laughter in every single day. This episode also includes conversations surrounding Jodi hearing and then recording “Part of Your World” for the first time (with the incredible guidance and care of Howard Ashman), what her own “I Want” song would be about, her time starring on Broadway in Crazy for You, and, of course, chatting with Ariel in the Disney Parks. This is Part 1 of a two-part-of-your-world-episode, so be sure to listen to Part 2!
