Jim and Tomic’s Musical Theatre Happy Hour


At the heart of any great story is a powerhouse duo. Valjean and Javert, Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett, Hamilton and Burr, Andrew Lloyd Webber and small cats, and now, our hosts: Jimi Mitchell and Tommy Nolan – your very own star-crossed musical theatre nerds. One from Scotland, one from Chicago. Both united in their love for all things musical theatre. They’ve come together to offer you a sip of everything you need to quench your musical theatre thirst.

This transatlantic podcast offers two separate perspectives into the wonderful world of musical theatre. Jimi and Tommy may live far away from the bright lights of Broadway and London’s West End, but they represent the massive community of musical theatre fans who live on a diet of cast recordings and regional theatre. They hope to share their passion with their fellow nerds, closet nerds and wannabe nerds.

With this podcast, they want to offer something a little different – each episode will explore the story of a different musical, delving deep into the show’s history and looking at the wider social context surrounding it. As Jimi and Tommy dive into some of your favourite shows, as well as shining the spotlight on some hidden gems, they invite you to learn something new whilst having a gay ol’ time.

If you’re new here, the boys recommend you pick your favourite show and listen to the episode about that!

So, get ready to sit back, relax, and indulge in a large glass of Jim & Tomic’s Musical Theatre Happy Hour.
