Tony Nominations. Life Changes. Taking Comedy Seriously.

Leslie Kritzer has been around for a second – two decades to be specific – and finally she has received a Tony Nomination for her brilliant turn as The Lady of the Lake in the 2024 revival of Spamalot. This episode is full of laughs as we talk about taking comedy seriously and full of tears as we talk about personal loss while performing one of the funniest shows in the musical theatre cannon.

“I did not get here alone,” says Kritzer on this emotional episode. Let’s dive in and celebrate this comedic genius who gives us her all, not just eight times a week, but even after the show closes.
