Patty & Emily reflect on the closing of another show, American Psycho, and Patty discovers her high school just performed School of Rock. They also talk movie musical news; what Hamilton fans will think of In the Heights, and why we (don’t) need another Guys and Dolls movie. And with the Tonys next week, Patty & Emily give their predictions of what will win this year. Will Hamilton win the most awards in history?!?!
It’s our first post-Tonys show! We talk about the show itself, and the repercussions, i.e. the closing notices of The Visit and Gigi. Patty talks about her trip to Philadelphia, and they talk about some casting and theatre news. And with the release of season three of Orange is the New Black, a fan sends us a dreamcast to discuss.
Watch us watch the Tonys! This year had some great moments: quick changes, ET, Judith Light, and Fun Home winning all the Tonys! See our reactions!
Patty & Emily record on Tonys Sunday! They talk about the shows they saw this week, including The Spoils, Ever After, and Celebrity Autobiography. They also went back and revisited some shows, including Fun Home, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and John & Jen. And it may be Tonys Sunday, but Patty & Emily are already in next season, talking to the cast of upcoming musical Amazing Grace.
Patty & Emily discuss the shows closing: The Heidi Chronicles, Living on Love, and Hamilton. They also discuss the shows they’ve seen this week, including True Believer and Hamlet, and this week’s news stories, including Stomp and The Tony nominations.
