This episode is a little different than our normal programming . . . this episode was recorded live at BroadwayCon a few weeks ago. Thanks again, Broadway Podcast Network and BroadwayCon, for having The Producer’s Perspective Podcast on the stage to have this conversation.
Haven’t seen Beetlejuice yet? Go check it out at The Winter Garden before it closes. For tickets, click here.
