This week, Jamie and Rob sit down with Broadway legend Beth Leavel. We discuss her incredible career, including 13 Broadway roles, and her current star turn in The Prom. Beth talks about her first Broadway audition (for Cats), creating new roles, including two written specifically for her, playing “divas,” and what makes Dee Dee Allen tick. Before we chat with Beth, Rob and Jamie talk about a recent trip to Long Island, missed trains, and Into The Woods.
