Once in every while there comes a podcast like this, it’s starts nice and sober and ends up … well … quite a bit less than sober. Welcome to Drunk Broadway where we discuss cocktails and jazz hands with a fanatical passion. My guests for this episode are Joey Montes and Juliet Green. Joey and I shared the stage in Miss Saigon and Young Frankenstein. You can’t help but want to be around Joey, due to his huge heart, welcoming smile, and wonderful talent. Juliet was my Lady of the Lake in Spamalot. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to her sing every night, and watch her make that role uniquely hers. FYI: Juliet has two fantastic jazz albums (Simple and Think About It) available just about everywhere you can buy music. In this episode, we discuss theatre horror stories, what makes for a successful production, odd special skills on your resume, and Juliet brought a fun game called “One Wrong Letter.”
Audience dears, oh, we know you’re out there listening, and you should follow our sweet advice to Drunk Broadway where we discuss cocktails and jazz hands with a fanatical passion. My guest for this episode are Tony Gonzales and Raegena Raymond-Brunker. Tony and I shared the stage in Miss Saigon and Young Frankenstein. His passion and work ethic immediately impressed me, and I’m thrilled to have him on the show. I first met Raegena when she was my fearless stage manager for Rent (and Miss Saigon later on). We also shared the stage in Annie, where she had a fabulous turn as Miss Hannigan. Her incredible talent is only matched by her kindness. In this episode we discuss why it doesn’t matter what skin color a mermaid has, what shows we would have run forever, the night Joseph didn’t have an amazing coat, and we play a game of The Missing Middle.
It’s more than you, it is more than me. No matter what we are, we are a family here on Drunk Broadway, where we discuss cocktails and jazz hands with a fanatical passion. My guests for this episode are Betsy Kruse Craig and Glenna Murillo. Betsy and I were (ahem … are) family because of a production of Addams Family a few years back. She is the Artistic Director of Pear Theatre (thepear.org), a dedicated director, a passionate performer, and I can’t wait to share the stage with her again. Glenna is someone that I have fanboyed over for years. Her voice, her undeniable presence, and her comedic timing are all devine. I’m honored to have both of these fierce ladies on the show. In this episode we discuss the difficulty of choosing a season of shows, the near impossible task of balancing life and theatre, protecting yourself when playing dramatic characters, and we play a round of Musicals Against Humanity.
