Dressing up in your fancy fun outfits, barely being able to see your mirror because of the mountains of flowers and gifts, the roar of a crowd that wants to celebrate your accomplishments and hard work, and the community building of passing down traditions: it must be a Broadway opening night! Hear Bre Jackson, Linda Mugleston, Jenifer Foote, Tyler Hanes, Eric Ulloa, and Anastacia McCleskey wax poetic about opening night traditions, their favorite mementos, and all the fun things that make Broadway feel special. Enjoy!

#90: Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS



Quick Warning: This episode contains a few words in reference to labels placed on people by society. They may be inappropriate for young children or loudspeaker listening.

When Broadway performers talk about the community events they love more than anything, they're often talking about events put on by the incredible organization Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, or Broadway Cares. Whether it's the Gypsy of the Year or Easter Bonnet competitions, Broadway Backwards, or the many other concerts throughout the year, nothing is more amazing than coming together to make life better for people in need. Hear Jamal Lee Harris, Eric Ulloa, and Casey Garvin discuss why they love fundraising, why the Broadway community wouldn't exist in the same way without Broadway Cares, and how much it means to them to see philanthropy in action.

#90: Invited Dress Rehearsals



The excitement. The anxiety. The love of just being in the room. An invited dress rehearsal is a thrilling theatre tradition, made even more thrilling when under the Broadway magnifying glass. Hear Jenifer Foote, Linda Mugelston, and Tyler Hanes talk about their favorite moments from the day before previews begin, why they love attending, and what having the support of the Broadway community rooting for your success means to them.
