The Fabulous Invalid


The Fabulous Invalid is a theatrical production company founded in 2018 by Jamie DuMont and Rob Russo with the mission to illuminate untold stories and fascinating personalities on air and on stage with a reverence for the past, a bold outlook for the future, and a dash of panache.  The company takes its name from the title of a 1938 backstage play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart that has since become a loving nickname for Broadway itself—always deemed on the verge of decline, yet always bouncing back: the fabulous invalid!

“The Fabulous Invalid Podcast” presents essential conversations with a curated roster of the best, most important, and innovative theatre-makers working today.  Hosts Jamie DuMont and Rob Russo released 100 episodes from 2018 to 2021, and continue to release bonus episodes.

As co-producers of Bob Fosse’s DANCIN’ on Broadway, Jamie and Rob are now hosting “DANCIN’ Man: A Fabulous Invalid Podcast” —a limited podcast series featuring exclusive, behind-the-scenes interviews with members of the cast and creative team of this much-anticipated Broadway revival.
