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. And to close, Rob gives an overview of original musicals, like The Prom, that are based on actual events.

This week’s music: Melissa Errico singing “No More” and “Overture/Audition” from the Original Cast of 42nd Street, Pearl Bailey singing “Before the Parade Passes By” from Hello Dolly, “Tonight Belongs to You” from The Prom, and Beth Leavel singing “It’s Not About Me” from The Prom and “As We Stumble Along” from The Drowsy Chaperone.
