The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes COME FROM AWAY's Geno Carr & Discuss Broadway Bound Kids' 'Broadway Bee'
This week we're excited to be shouting "Welcome to the Rock!" (and no, we're not talking about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson!) On this episode, we're sitting down with Come From Away's brilliant and hilarious Geno Carr! We're pouring out Hudson Baby Bourbon and Hudson Manhattan Rye while Geno spills about his journey from California to D.C. to Canada to Broadway with Come From Away.
The first half of the episode gets a bit zany because Kevin and Bryan are left without Game Master and (Un)Official Babysitter Kimberly. Luckily, she arrives just in time to save us from arguing over the Muppet Universe while playing "Dirty Hands on a Hardbody"--but not soon enough to stop us from coining the phrase "Winnie the Pooh-ing It" and making a commercial for La Jolla Playhouse. We rave about #FriendoftheShow Jared Zirilli in Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, Geno shares about his successful showmance and appropriate amount of social media sharing, we unveil the newly-named "Tuesdays in the Corner with Kevin," and Game Master Kimberly introduces the new game "I'm an Islander!" We have so much fun with new #FriendoftheShow Geno Carr so join us as we shares some drinks and laughs and get Broadwaysted!
Don't forget! Next week we'll be attending the 3rd Annual Broadway Bee on Monday, May 7th! This year's Bee will feature actors from Chicago, My Fair Lady, Jersey Boys, The Play That Goes Wrong, Waitress, Beautiful, Angels in America, Dear Evan Hansen, SpongeBob SquarePants, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the TV show "Rise" spelling their way to the top to raise funds for the amazing non-profit Broadway Bound Kids.
