In part two of the Marquis Theatre episode with special guest Anne L. Nathan, Anne and Jennifer Ashley Tepper tell the tale of Hector, who was locked in the theater, the hidden escalators and changes to the house over the years, dressing rooms, practical jokes, and what it was like when Thoroughly Modern Millie won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Plus Anne talks about understudying Tonya Pinkins out of town in Millie, and then understudying Harriet Harris and Sheryl Lee Ralph in town (and later on, standing by/ being the alternate for Broadway Bounty Hunter!). And, Anne shares her influential early theater-going experiences, and inspirations. This episode also includes a story from Jonathan Groff about how Millie inspired him, and a story from Lin-Manuel Miranda about how The Capeman influenced him and came to inspire In The Heights.
