The Audio Drama Initiative today announced that the cast and creators of the new podcast musical LITTLE DID I KNOW, the first Broadway-level podcast musical, will present a special interactive "improvised jam session" on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 5pm EST, 2pm PST, and 10pm BST. The special live stream will be hosted at The Audio Drama Initiative's YouTube home page:

Clayton Cornelious performing some if its 22 original songs and interacting with fans. Composer three-time Tony Award Winner Doug Besterman (The Producers, Thoroughly Modern Millie), lyricist Marcy Heisler (Ever After), director Marlo Hunter, and producer Robert Barandes will also participate, discussing the show, and providing a sneak peek at its narrative.

LITTLE DID I KNOW's lyrics are by Oscar and Golden Globe award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose) along with Heisler. It features a book by New York Times best-selling author Lou Aronica and Johanna Besterman based on the novel by award-winning producer Mitchell Maxwell (Stomp!, Damn Yankees, Pulitzer Prize winner Dinner with Friends). It also features arrangements and musical direction by Jeffrey Saver, orchestrations by Michael Morris, and editing and sound design by Dave Hart. Casting was by Robin Carus and General Management is by Five Points Theatrical (Carl Vorwerk and Mahaley Jacobs).

Soon after its debut, the show rose to #3 position on the U.S. Apple podcast charts and the top 40 among all podcasts nationally - making it one of the most successful podcast musicals ever. Episodes of the new musical will be released every Tuesday through May 12. A digital podcast soundtrack recording, produced by Broadway Records and featuring the podcast's original twenty-two songs, is also available everywhere music is sold.

LITTLE DID I KNOW tells the story of a group of friends - recent college graduates - who bring a broken-down summer theatre back to life in 1976. The summer will be different from anything they expected. Told over nine episodes, approximately thirty minutes each, LITTLE DID I KNOW includes twenty-two original songs.
