We have the Elsie Fest date!
My guest Andrew Forste is on the podcast to talk about working backstage at the Stephen Sondheim theater, his child as a musical theater actor, the Elsie alums he's worked with, and his celebrity sister.
Stay tuned to the end to hear Matthew Morrison's Hairspray medley from Elsie Fest 2018.
When my husband told me that two of his students gave a presentation called "The Impact of Glee on Society," I knew I had to interview them. Our conversation is also a fitting tribute for the sixth anniversary of Cory Monteith's death.

I talk to Kristen Daniels of 42nd Street Stitches! We nerd out about musicals and stitchery and the whole thing ends with Darren Criss and Nick Jonas singing Brotherhood of Man.

I chat with Jason SweetTooth Williams about his off-Broadway musical Broadway Bounty Hunter, opening this summer, and his Broadway musical Be More Chill, how he got his start in musicals, and what it's like to wear those tighty-whities in front of 900 people every night.

I interview Producer/Director/Writer Ashlee Latimer about her work on Be More Chill, Once On This Island, and Hadestown, her approach to life, and our mutual love of Darren Criss. I found her inspiring and I think you will too.
On Monday, January 21st I went to a Works & Process event at the Guggenheim Museum. The Creatives from Be More Chill were there to discuss the show with Laura Heywood and a medical ethicist. The event was terrific and I was able to interview some fans, members of the panel, and two of the cast members who performed at the event.
Thanks to Works & Process and to my guests: Alex, Max, Diane, Laura Heywood, Will Roland, Joe Iconis, Chase Brock, and George Salazar. Music in this episode is from the Be More Chill Karaoke Contest and my own recording from Elsie Fest 2018. Cover image courtesy of Be More Chill.
