“A lot of people were skeptical of the Street Tugger but I think I managed to persuade them through my energy and the way I wanted to convey the character that it did work.” This episode features Daniel Assetta who played the infamous Street Cat version of the Rum Tum Tugger on the Australia/New Zealand tour. Hear Daniel discus how he was asked to hip hop dance in his audition, how the role of the Street Cat even came to life, and how he found inspiration for the role. Plus, hear Daniel talk about helping create portions of his choreography for the break dance part and Mike share how often he has meme’d Daniel’s image.
