The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Talks Paper Mill's HALF TIME with Jerry Mitchell, Donna McKechnie, Georgia Engel, More
On this week's episode, the Broadwaysted crew is thrilled to shine a spotlight on the Tony-winning regional theatre just a hop, skip, and a jump away from NYC: the incredible Paper Mill Playhouse! The Broadwaysted crew is pouring out Flur de Cana Rum, Montelobos Mezcal, and rosé while we chat about Paper Mill's brand new musical Half Time and share our opening night chats with Director/Choreographer Jerry Mitchell, Paper Mill Playhouse Producing Artistic Director Mark S. Hobee, and Half Time legendary cast members Donna McKechnie, Georgia Engel, and Nancy Ticotin!
"What Have You Seen This Week" finds Bryan and Kevin raving about Three Tall Women and Kimberly sharing some of her recent vacation memories from Caboose Junction Resort and Silver Dollar City. Since Kimberly was on vacay, Kevin takes over the "Game Master" duties and introduces a brand new game called "Word to your Lyricist" where we try to channel our inner Half Time characters and turn classic musical theatre lyrics into rap songs...and well-known pop songs into musical theatre masterpieces. We also introduce a new segment, "Malbec Mailbag," where we answer questions submitted through email/social media by #ListenersoftheShow! We finish up with Bryan and Kimberly visiting "Kevin's Corner" where we cast some imaginary musicals. We have a great time on this episode so listen in and then don't miss your chance to see Half Time playing at Paper Mill Playhouse until July 1st! Find out more at www.papermill.org.
As a bonus, this episode also features a special "Off-Broadwaysted" segment where Kevin chats with actor Sam Spadafore and Director/Producing Artistic Director of Egg & Spoon Theatre Collective Liam Lonegan about the upcoming production of The Song of Bernadette Jones by Maura Campbell.
