The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes MEAN GIRLS' Star Barrett Wilbert Weed
This week we'd rather be us...but also be with our new #FriendoftheShow and Mean Girls star Barrett Wilbert Weed!
We're cracking open WAY TOO MANY MANCAN Wine cans while Barrett spills about sharing a dressing room with Kerry Butler, the honesty she brings to her unconventional roles, and how we should call more things a menagerie.
"What Have You Seen This Week?" finds Kimberly gushing about The Gentleman Caller at the Cherry Lane Theatre and Bryan sharing his fun trip to Escape to Margaritaville. Game Master Kimberly tries to stump us with the game "2018 Slang...OR Something I'm Trying to Make Happen," Barrett tries her hand at fielding the questionable questions in "Kevin's Corner" (including a fantasy musical casting of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Musical), and then we deal out the Lights of Broadway Show Cards and assign some new "Yearbook Superlatives."
We'll never say "you can't sit with us" to our new #FriendoftheShow...but Barrett does say "I don't NOT look like Tim Curry" on this episode," so listen in as the MANCANS flow as Barrett Wilbert Weeds gets Broadwaysted!
