Patty & Emily start off on a sad note with the death of David Bowie and Liz Swados and the closing notice of Allegiance. They bring the mood back up with casting notices of Kate Baldwin in The King and I, Tony Yazbek in Finding Neverland, and Kecia Lewis in Mother Courage. There’s also a lot of off-topic convos about Jennifer Lawrence and Star Trek: TGN.
Patty & Emily discuss all the shows closing this week, as the January slaughter begins, and Patty’s viewing of Nunsense. Most of the discussion is this week’s biggest story: Tonya Pinkins’s exit from CSC’s production of Mother Courage. They also talk about the excellent casting news of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and The Secret Garden and updates on the Hudson Theatre. They have some questions for their British listeners.
