Every Scene a Little Death

Bryan: Okay, so multiple people die in this episode. That's intense.
Kevin: Well, it's the final chapter of an epic saga. People on both sides have to fall on the battlefield. Remember Harry Potter--
Bryan: Oh I'm still grieving that!
Kevin: I had so much fun writing the melodramatic death scene for Hannah and Bryan--but the real fun was recording it with them. All of us couldn't stop laughing! That was definitely a multiple take scene!
Kimberly: And Will Roland just ad-libbed his death, right?
Kevin: Yeah, basically we told him to die by saying as many famous last lines from movies he could think of--because I'd put most of the death lines from musicals into the Hannah Scene.
Kimberly: The Female One scene--
Kevin: (laughing) Right. Female One.

Telephone Hour

Kevin: The recording process for Broadwaysted Away was a blast, but it was complicated because most people recorded with us on their own and I edited the dialogue together later.
Kimberly: For some people, scheduling was almost impossible--Lesli Margherita, for example, was out of town killing it in Guys and Dolls so she recorded her part on her own and sent it to us--
Bryan: Hence the cameo by her dog.
Kevin: Also, when I was editing "Part Three: Part Two (The Final One)," I discovered a pivotal narration section that Bryan had never recorded for some reason or another.
Bryan: So while I was in Hawaii, I recorded the section on my phone and sent it to Kevin.
Kevin: Sorry I had to interrupt your vacation, Bro.
Kimberly: Bro?
Bryan: No, it's okay, Kimberly. The "Bro" Must Go On!
Kimberly: Oh God! Boooo! Did you guy's plan that?
Kevin: No, but do I get an assist for that one?
Bryan: Yeah, that was You and Me...But Mostly Me.
Kimberly: God, I need a drink for this interview.

The Giggle Award

This Award is given to the cast member who was most prone to the giggles during recording...aka the "Jimmy Fallon" Award

Bryan: Okay, this one has a lot of potential candidates, so let's just each take turns saying our choice. Ladies first...meaning Kimberly.
Kimberly: Mike Faist. Hands down. He basically laughed through the entire whisper part of the battle--which is understandable, because it's ridiculous and Brendon was hysterical--but I got to give it to Mike.
Bryan: Kevin--your choice?
Kevin: Hannah Elless and Bryan again--I just remember both of them were seriously encouraging each other to hold it together with silent nods and a crazy eye language. It was hard to watch them and not laugh--but they legit broke into belly laughs through multiple takes of the death scene.
Bryan: So both of those are solid choices. But, of course, both of you are wrong. The giggler of this group was definitely Max Crumm. He had a blast ad-libbing random dance moves during the fight scenes...but he was struggling to keep from laughing during all his serious Dance Captain lines.
Kevin: Wow, a three-person tie. Can we do that?
Kimberly: Yeah--didn't they do that for the boys in Billy Elliot?

Maybe Far Away, or Maybe Real Nearby...

Kevin: We have had a blast presenting Broadwaysted Away for the past few weeks and we've really appreciated the positive response the previous episodes have received!
Bryan: We'd love to hear what you think after hearing the final installment, so hit us up on social media @Broadwaysted and tell us!
Kimberly: We're excited to return next week with the classic episode format, and the next few weeks hold a couple more surprises and Broadwaysted firsts!
Bryan: But for those of you who listened to the radio play and are saying "Please Sir, I Want Some More"...well--
Kimberly: Our official answer for the "Will you be doing another radio play?" is currently "Maybe."
Kevin: Well, wait--guys. If this is a place for spoilers, we should probably just tell them that we're--
Bryan & Kimberly: KEVIN!
Kevin: No, you're right. Leave it with a cliff-hanger. This interview is TO BE CONTINUED...
Bryan: No, it's over.
Kimberly: Yeah, we're done.
Kevin: OR ARE WE?!
Bryan: It's five o'clock.
Kevin: Oh yeah, we're definitely done. Happy Hour?
Kimberly: Let's go toast Broadwaysted Away!
