Bite-Sized Broadway: A Mini-Musical Podcast is a brand new musical theatre program featuring new and exciting "mini-musicals" presented as fully-produced radio plays, complete with lush orchestrations, captivating sound effects, and some of the greatest talent that Broadway, Hollywood, TV, and even YouTube have to offer. Each musical is followed by an in-depth discussion with its brilliant creators, introducing audiences to new musicals and new writers without the commitment of having to listen to a whole cast album. It's a whole Broadway experience inside your phone as IndieWorks brings you new musicals that you can listen to anytime, anywhere.

"In addition to giving our audience the taste of Broadway that they crave, we are excited to give a voice to emerging musical writers from around the world," states IndieWorks Producing Artistic Director Christopher Michaels. "Bite-Sized Broadway is unlike any other theater podcast. It's engaging entertainment, industry advice, and a behind-the-scenes look at musical theater development."

This season of Bite-Sized Broadway features a diversity of musicals from the United States, Canada, Israel, Australia, the U.K and The Philippines with noteworthy themes spanning racism, politics, identity, aging, mental health and family.
