The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes Broadway Star, Singer-Songwriter Michael Longoria
This week the Broadwaysted crew is thrilled to be chatting and laughing with singer-songwriter and former Jersey Boys on Broadway star, Michael Longoria!
This week we're pouring out Milagro Tequila and picturing the "Movies in our Minds" as Michael spills about his newest album, "Like They Do in the Movies" released by Broadway Records (oh HEY Robbie Rozelle!) Michael shares about his experience joining the Broadway smash hit Hairspray for his Broadway debut, the wild ride of Jersey Boys on Broadway, and the inspiration behind selecting each of the fantastic movie songs on his amazing new album.
Game Master Kimberly pulls out our favorite--our Lights of Broadway Show Cards collection--and we play a rousing game of "Heads Up!" before Michael navigates the "Funniest Questions to Ask A Guy" in "Kevin's Corner." We also discuss Hilton Head, South Carolina's Greg Russell and how everyone there sing's Bette Midler's "The Rose," how Michael got his start as a singer at a young age, and the TV moments that we will never forget. We have a blast with Michael Longoria, so make sure to listen in and then get his new album "Like They Do In The Movies" from Broadway Records!
