The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes COME FROM AWAY Creators Irene Sankoff, David Hein
This week the Broadwaysted Crew is feeling like a bunch of Islanders because we're sharing some drinks, some snacks, and a lot of fun with the creators of Come From Away: Irene Sankoff and David Hein!
We're pouring out Reyka Vodka, Tanteo Tequila, MANCAN wine, and Flor de Caña rum and eating a wild assortment of Canadian snacks and treats (thanks #SuperFanoftheShow Linda!) while Irene and David spill about their unique journeys to writing musicals, the work/life balance of being a married writing duo, and their deep and passionate love of Canadian Folk Music (well, David's love.)
Game Master Kimberly leads us through a lyrical quiz game called "The Last Word," Irene and David try their best to make sense of "Kevin's Corner" (picture Jenn Colella as Darth Vader), and then Kimberly pulls out the Lights of Broadway Show Cards for a new game called "Come From ______."
We have an amazing time with the lovely and talented Irene Sankoff and David Hein so listen in and join in the fun as Irene and David get Broadwaysted!
