The sun is shining, it’s a lovely day. A perfect podcast for you to play, and we’ve got lots of drinks to maaake. Here on Drunk Broadway where we discuss cocktails and jazz hands with a fanatical passion. My guests for this episode are Russell Mangan and Lucie Sudmeier. Russell is a hard working and long commuting lawyer with a love for all things theatre. Lucie’s passion for the local theatre scene and helping create the next generation of stars is just wonderful. I’m thrilled to have them both on the show. In this episode we discuss inventive ways to use your fingers, the fear of auditioning, why the arts are vital to the tech industry, and we play a round of What’s The Connection?

Some folks dream of the wonders they’ll do before their time on this planet is through, and some just drink and talk about theatre. Welcome to Drunk Broadway where we discuss cocktails and jazz hands with a fanatical passion. My guests for this episode are Sasha Motalygo and Dave Leon. Sasha is a force of nature on stage with a voice and personality that you can’t help but love. Sasha is also the composer and performer of the Drunk Broadway theme song! As for Dave … well … he is the reason I have a lead pipe in my trunk for callbacks. He’s a wonderful performer, and I’m thrilled he was able to join us for a drink and conversation. In the episode we discuss stage horror stories, roles that you would play forever, we play a round of Would You Rather, and workshop a few SciFi musicals!

Beedle dee, dee dee dee, TWO LADIES! Beedle dee, dee dee dee, Drunk Broadway … where we discuss cocktails and jazz hands with a fanatical passion. For this episode, I had the great pleasure to speak with Jeanie Smith and Jen Ellington. Jeanie is a local legend, with a theatre resume to match, she is a teacher, a director, a performer, and was wonderful to speak with and learn from. Jen, who I shared the stage with in Fiddler on the Roof, is an excellent performer who gives back by teaching the next generation of theatre kids. In the episode, we discuss the beauty and difficulty of teaching theatre, diversity in casting, and play a round of Opening Lines and Terrible Sequels.
