On this week’s show, Jamie and Rob are joined at Orso Restaurant by “one singular sensation”: Priscilla Lopez! Currently starring in “Grand Horizons” on Broadway, Priscilla talks about her storied career, from her Broadway debut that wasn’t—the two performance flop “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”—to replacement gigs in “Company” and “Pippin”, and her landmark creation of Diana Morales in “A Chorus Line”. She talks candidly about working with Michael Bennett, Bob Fosse, and Tommy Tune, and reflects back on a long and fabulous career in the theatre through 50 years and 15 Broadway shows. Afterward, Rob gives a closer look at “A Day In Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine”, the 1980 musical for which Priscilla won a Tony Award.
This week’s music: “Nothing”, “What I Did For Love” from “A Chorus Line” and “Tick Tock” from “Company”.
