What a treat to interview our dear friends and Broadway Power Couple Robyn Hurder and Clyde Alves! Currently in Moulin Rouge! on Broadway, Robyn’s other Broadway credits include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Chicago, The Wedding Singer, Grease, and Nice Work If You Can Get It, where she and Clyde performed together. You may have seen Clyde in Broadway’s On The Town, Anything Goes, Bullets Over Broadway, Wicked, Hairspray, and Oklahoma. Quite the list, right?
Their love story started at the age of 19 at Maine State Music Theatre. They have been each other’s biggest support and cheerleader through more shows and travels and changes than you can imagine. We love their energy, humor, teamwork, and their unfailing love for each other and this business that brought them together. It’s been our great pleasure to watch their love grow over the years, and evolve into a full-on triangle when they became parents to their amazing son.
When you talk to old friends, nothing is off limits: their early impressions of one another, dating, moving in, the decision to become parents, first grade in the pandemic, Instagram… you name it. Robyn and Clyde are ready to talk about it!
This week’s SPOTLIGHT ON LOVE comes to us from our listener Jason:
How do you stay sane as a couple being together in quarantine 24 hours a day? What are some suggestions?
Robyn and Clyde knew that their relationship was going to last when they could say absolutely anything in front of one another. Without meaning to, they created a safe space where everything was allowed. How about you? What was the moment that told you this relationship is going to go the distance? We love relationship stories. Go ahead. Tell us yours!
