Exclusive Podcast: Go 'Behind the Curtain' with Press Agent, Joshua Ellis

Exclusive Podcast: Go 'Behind the Curtain' with Press Agent, Joshua Ellis Stop the presses.......literally! One of Broadway's most respected press agents, Joshua Ellis, has the spotlight shifted from his glittering clientele and focused firmly on him in this delightful interview. Today, we cover some of the 100 plus shows Joshua has worked on including Into the Woods, 42nd Street, Lena Horne: The Lady and her Music, The King and I, Morning's at Seven, and The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.

Joshua pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how Barbra Streisand and Yul Brynner shared a clandestine car trip, what it was like working for the wily David Merrick, and why Carol Channing is the savviest person in show business!

Also, Joshua shines the spotlight on Eva LeGallienne, Eartha Kitt, and Ethel Merman.
