On this week’s show, Jamie and Rob bring you an interview with the extraordinary choreographer Camille A. Brown, who in the last year alone worked on the Metropolitan Opera’s production of “Porgy and Bess”, The Public Theater’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When The Rainbow Is Enuf”, and “Toni Stone” for Roundabout, and earned a Tony Award nomination for her work on Manhattan Theatre Club’s “Choir Boy”. Camille speaks candidly about her career, what inspires her, and why representation matters. To close, Rob takes a look at other trailblazing black female choreographers who have worked on Broadway (sadly, the list is short).
The Week’s Music: The “Theme from Fame”, “Mama Will Provide” from “Once on This Island: New Broadway Cast”, “Forget About the Boy” from “Thoroughly Modern Millie”, “I’ve Got A Feeling I’m Falling” from “Ain’t Misbehavin’”, “I’ll Never Say No” from “The Unsinkable Molly Brown: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”, and “If You Believe”, from “The Wiz”.
