Stephanie J. Block Talks About Her Upcoming Concert as Part of the Seth Concert Series, and More, on Backstage LIVE With Richard Ridge

Nothing can stop BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge from bringing you interviews with your favorite Broadway stars! On August 14, he chatted with Tony winner Stephanie J. Block.

Block talked about her upcoming livestream concert, as part of The Seth Concert Series, which will take place Sunday, August 16 at 8 PM ET with a one-time-only rebroadcast Monday, August 17 at 3 PM ET.

She talked about what fans can expect from the show.

"There will be a lot of my all-time favorites," Block said. "I must admit, there are about five or six songs that are so safe, and so me, that truly, our walls could fall down and I'd still be singing."

She then went on to say, "There are a couple of tunes that are brand new. I'm going to sing Being Alive from Company. That's not in my wheelhouse, so that'll be new."

She also said that there will be a song for her daughter.

"I promise there won't be politics," Block said. "It will just be oozing of musical theatre because that is what I'm hungry for and I think that's what my fans are hungry for at this point."

Throughout the rest of the interview, Block also talked about how her family, and especially her young daughter, is handling the pandemic. She talked about their homeschooling techniques and how she has taken to social distancing.

Later, Richie brought up some highlights from Block's career, where she got her start, and more!
