November 27, 2016

We've reached the end of our Fall 2016 Rehearsal Reports! Thank you to the amazing Erica Dorfler and everyone at Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 for being so open and letting us peek into this one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. 

Listen to Erica talk about finally freezing the show, the fun of opening night and the Gypsy Robe ceremony, and everything in between as the show finally opens! Enjoy!

#94: Next to Normal

#94: Next to Normal

November 20, 2016

We assembled some pretty brilliant folks to talk about this brilliant show. Hear Adam Chanler-Berat, Pearl Sun, Michael Berresse, and Michael McElroy talk about how a show with only six cast members can make an ensemble, the trust that's needed to tell this story, and why Next to Normal is forever relevant. Enjoy!

#93: RENT

#93: RENT

November 13, 2016

It's time to measure our lives in love, meditate on the power of standing up for what we believe in, and do it all with a healthy dose of rock 'n roll. Because, as the song goes, everything is RENT, and RENT is everything to us. Hear from Adam Chanler-Berat and Michael McElroy as they talk about the show that swept the '90s and inspired an entire generation of musical theatre artists. Enjoy!

#92: Sunday In The Park With George

November 6, 2016

We may not be able to tell you who George was at the zoo with (the monkeys and WHO, George?), but we can dive into the unbelievable masterpiece that is Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Sunday In The Park With George. 

With guests John Jellison, Adam Chanler-Berat, and a special appearance by Brynn O'Malley and Mary Beth Peil from the archives, we talk about art, life, humanity, love, finding yourself, perfection, making musical theatre, and how they all intersect. Enjoy!
