Hi, I’m Scott Folan. I’m a 21 year old Actor, so naturally I think I can do anything and everything. I’ve decided to start a podcast just talking nonsense with my friends in the industry. There will be awkward pauses and we will talk about only the BIG topics in life because I whole-heartedly believe ‘Actors Can’t Do Small Talk’…
An original eight episode storytelling series dedicated to amplifying the unheard voice. Each episode features a remarkable true story (or two) curated from over twenty years of Houses on the Moon Theater Company’s unique development process of storytelling workshops and interviews with real people. The first season spotlights tales from individuals whose lives have been touched by guns; parents of gender-expansive children; families with incarcerated loved ones; a global conversation between LGBTQ+ storytellers in the U.S. and India; and undocumented youth. These stories, adapted for audio, will be followed by in-depth conversations with host Jeffrey Solomon, the storytellers, and featured community partners. The podcast also features original music by multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, producer, and educator Raleigh Neal II.
CARRIE THE MUSICAL has long been considered the Queen of Broadway Flops. It closed in record time, losing millions of dollars. But can the rumors of backstage chaos, on-stage accidents and audience hysterics really be true? Prepare to discover the surprising story behind the show’s creation and its infamously disastrous run.
Two obsessive fans, Chris Adams and Holly Morgan, dust off their bootleg VHS tape and decide to find out the truth. They meet the cast, crew and creators, sift through the mysteries and urban legends, chat to some famous super-fans, and find out how Carrie rose from the dead and reinvented itself as a mainstream musical success story.
If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an army, a peace corps, and a village to birth a Broadway show. Tony and Olivier Award-winning producer Hal Luftig ( Kinky Boots , Plaza Suite, and many more) has had successes, failures, and everything in between. Now, with humor and heart, he sits down weekly with a different artist, expert, or industry leader to chat about every step and specialty in the process that gets a show from idea to audience.
A discussion of smaller, more intimate theater works and the people that make it happen.
As many of you know; “Your Program Is Your Ticket” is a helpful system where your program is literally your ticket to get into the theater in smaller, more intimate productions. It’s these works we like to highlight and it’s our goal on this show to feature as many of these productions as possible while still discussing the biggies. Hosted by Sean W Chandler.
