Podcast: 'Keith Price's Curtain Call' Counts Down the Top 10 Episodes of 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! If you are lucky enough to have something like a podcast that people are actually listening to and supporting, then the new year is always a time to find out the most listened to podcast of the previous year. Last year, I thought 20 was a great number to countdown without realizing how much time it would be to crunch the numbers. SO, this year I am gonna keep it very simple, and thankfully after almost 100 episodes this past year, here are the most listened to podcasts of 2017. Please revisit and enjoy.

10. SHELDON & Margery Harnick

The Tony Award, and Pulitzer Prize winning lyricist, Sheldon Harnick and his lovely wife, accomplished actress and photographer, Margery, had me up at their fabulous apartment to chat about their collaboration with their son, Matthew. Truly one of my favorite moments EVAH!!!!

9. Tony Award Winners Daisy Eagan, Alice Ripley, and Tony Nominee, Sharon McNight
The stars join forces to tell the scandalous tales in Phil Geoffrey Bonds new play, SMALL TOWN CONFESSIONS, during the Broadway Bound Festival. These ladies allowed me to stop by during their rehearsal to chat about the piece and their lives.

8. Betty Buckley

Tony Award winning, Grammy Award nominee, Betty Buckley, had an amazing 2017. She was featured in one of the big movies of the year, SPLIT. She released another CD, STORY SONGS, and continues to tour the country as a solo artist in both cabaret and big theaters around the country. I just loves me some Ms. Betty Lynn, and I am so glad that you guys do, too.

7. Max Crumm & Lucy DeVito

Broadway Veteran, Max Crumm (GREASE, DISASTER) and Lucy DeVito (IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, CURMUDGEONS) make the countdown, most recently seen together in the short lived, Off Broadway play, HOT MESS. It was great to meet both of these young talents. Lucy is the daughter of Award winning actors/producers, Rhea Pearlman and Danny DeVito.

6. James Sampliner

One of the hippest, grooviest musical conductor, arrangers working, James Sampliner, stopped by during 2017 to talk about his work on the first Broadway musical to open in the 2017-2018 season, PRINCE OF BROADWAY. he also talks about some of the great collaborative experiences with artists like Harold Prince, Jason Robert Brown, Billy Porter, and Stephen Sondheim.


The adorable and super talented, actor, director, singer, dancer, videographer, editor, and producer, Andrew Keenan-Bolger is starred in a modern and new holiday show, Kris Kringle The Musical. Along with Kim Crosby, Cathy Rigby, Pamela Myers, and a wonderful assortment of Broadway talent, this cast is performed this show for the charity, The Singing Angels. The Singing Angels Mission is "To encourage, foster and cultivate positive youth development by engaging youth from all communities in quality music and performing arts education that teaches discipline, builds confidence, and provides a foundation for life - Making Music, Making Friends, Making a Difference."

4. Rodney Hicks

From the multi Tony Award nominated musical, COME FROM AWAY, Rodney Hicks joined me to talk about his role(s) in the show. We both made note of a particular realization that we both shared while actually visiting Canada. We also talked about gratitude, kindness of man, and generosity. This past year, Rodney had to retire from performing due to vocal problems, but I know that I have made a new friend. Listen to our chat, and you will feel the exact same way.

3. Dionne Warwick

Legendary Diva, 5x Grammy Award winning, Multi Platinum and Gold recording artist and actress, Dionne Warwick, takes time out of her busy schedule to talk to me about her AIDS activism, her career, and so much more. She is everything. The organization that she is representing, ACRIA, envisions a world where all people with HIV receive the treatment, care, and support they need to lead healthy, productive lives and where new transmissions of the virus have been eliminated.

2. Caesar Samayoa

The super talented actor, singer, dancer, Caesar Samayoa, is currently making people laugh, cry, and find their inner goodness, 8 shows a week, in the slow boiling hit new musical, Come From Away. Mr. Samayoa caught my attention in the musical Sister Act. I have been a bit of a fan, but clearly one who cannot read or speak, because I have been mispronouncing his name until this interview. I get schooled. I also get to laugh with someone who I hope will become one of my brunching Broadway Baby Daddies. Please laugh along and enjoy my conversation with Caesar Samayoa.

1. Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne

So our #1 Most Listened To Episode is with new Composer/Lyricists, Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne, the award-winning creators of the musical The Boy Who Danced on Air. They stopped by for a conversation about their new piece. It is an intense story that grapples with many questions about poverty, abuse, sexuality, and religion in the Afghanistan culture. However, these guys are far from being Afghans. Statistically, I could not believe how many people actually listened. Check out our conversation and thank you for your continuing support.
