Patty & Emily talk about the shows they saw, including YOUARENOWHERE and The Wildness. They congratulate Marc Shaiman on his marriage and mourn the loss of Ken Howard. They talk about this week’s stories, including Shuffle Along news and the upcoming Roman Holiday and The Honeymooners.
Patty & Emily lament still not having seen Shuffle Along after a full week of performances. Patty talks about seeing a high school production of Aida and audience behavior at On Your Feet!. They talk about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory coming to Broadway and possible casting and Shoshana Bean in Funny Girl. They also answer a listener question and do a dreamcast!
Patty makes a correction, and then she and Emily talk about the Parade concert and Boy. They dive into the unfortunate Nerds cancelation and Patti Murin’s blog post about the BWW message boards. There’s also Anastasia casting and Emily practically buys her MegaBus ticket to Hartford. And Crazy Ex-Girlfriend gets a season two pickup!
Patty tries to make it through the podcast after being sat directly next to Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys at Disaster. After recounting her experience, she tells Emily about The Woodsman and they discuss Eclipsed. They also go over theatre news, including the disappointing 1776 casting, Wicked‘s digital lottery, and Pump Boys & Dinettes at Paper Mill.
