Ep.9 – Jeanie Smith and Jen Ellington

Jeanie Smith
Jen Ellington

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.
