"When you think of 'Broadway,' the first people that come to mind are likely the stars, directors, and the creative people on the front lines who make our favorite shows happen. But there are so many influential people behind the scenes and working in the industry that we never hear from, each with their own unique and valuable perspectives. This season is dedicated to pulling back the curtain and hearing from some of the unsung heroes of Broadway, which I hope gives listeners a well-rounded point of view on the business we all know and love," says Ken Davenport.
