We wanted to subtitle this episode (a list of shows that made us all cry), but we knew it wouldn't fit all on one line, so we're putting it here.
It's our last episode of the season, friends! To celebrate the shows we saw and all the ensemblists therein, we brought our good friend, Buzzfeed's Louis Peitzman, into the studio to talk it out. And cry it out. And love on all things theatrical. Want to hear about what we saw during the Spring season, what we loved, who we thought deserved a special shout-out, and more? Well, listen and find out!

WE. LOVE. AUDITION. STORIES. You know that. Everyone's got great ones, and our guests are no exception: hear Laura Marie Duncan, Ray Lee, Krysta Rodriguez, Jessica Rush, Betsy Struxness, and Nicholas Ward spill the goods on getting those jobs. Enjoy!

We're taking another deep dive into contractual language today, but with a really fun twist. We talk a lot about the creation process of new musicals, but what is it that allows ensemblists to create all those characters? Do they like doing it? How are they paid for the work they do? Is there some sort of blanket catchall term that allows this to happen?
It's "As Cast." And if you don't know, now you know.
Our incredibly accomplished and super-cool guests Seán Martin Hingston, Vasthy Mompoint, and Anne L. Nathan take the plunge with us to figure all of this out, tell their own creation stories, and, as always, fold it all in to the magic of theatre. Enjoy!
