'Booked It' is a scathing satirical podcast, hosted by Broadway music director Nate Patten, aimed at taking on the Broadway community's narcissism, insecurity, and its unhealthy dependence on social media. In a love-hate relationship with show business, Nate raises an eyebrow at the idiosyncrasies of the scene, and invites the audience to think about their actions online as well as the world at large. Featuring interviews with industry celebrities and insight that only insiders could offer, this is a show for the theatre lover and comedy fan alike.
