The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Talks Broadway Bares with WICKED's Ryan Jackson
This week the Broadwaysted Crew is letting it ALL hang out with Wicked company member and "Broadway Bares" performer Ryan Jackson!
We're pouring out Milagro Tequila and Van Brunt Stillhouse Whiskey as Ryan spills about facing his fear of heights in Wicked, the excitement (and hunger) of Bares season and what to expect from "Broadway Bares: Take Off," and landing a makeup gig at The Lion King on Broadway.
Game Master Kimberly introduces the game "What Kind of Bear Are You?" with our favorite Lights of Broadway Show Cards...which basically turns into Kevin answering questions as Gwen Verdon as a Bear. We also try to decipher some hilarious "Before and Afters," chat about Sea Monsters, and Ryan visits "Kevin's Corner" (brought to you by our friends at Goldstar) where we remember the pop star Jewel.
We have an amazing time with Ryan so grab your earbuds and favorite cocktail and listen in as Ryan Jackson gets Broadwaysted!
