The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes Tony-Winning Choreographer Warren Carlyle
The Broadwaysted Crew is "Brushin' Up Our Shakespeare" on the newest episode with this week's guest, Tony-nominated Choreographer of Kiss Me, Kate (and former Tony winner!) Warren Carlyle!
We're pouring out Tanteo Habanero Tequila (so good and so spicy!) and Kimberly's favorite--Bar Hill Gin--as Warren spills about his creative process and audition combos, his love of West Side Story in all forms, and his deep connection to the musical Cats.
Kimberly introduces the "Taboo" style game "Dance Around It" with Lights of Broadway Show Cards and then we create new musicals in the game "A Tale of Two Cities" using some of the cities around the country that you can get great deals with our friends at Goldstar.com/broadwaysted. Warren also gushes about "Cheeses of the World," takes a trip to "Kevin's Corner," and chats about his work with Hugh Jackman on his current World Tour and the upcoming Broadway revival of The Music Man with Sutton Foster!
Fun Fact: Warren was Associate Choreographer for the 2002 Broadway revival of Oklahoma! and we keep our Lights of Broadway Show Cards in a Scenery Bag made from the tour of that production (seriously check out scenerybags.com they're amazing!) We have a blast with Warren so grab your earbuds and your dancin' shoes and listen in as Warren Carlyle gets Broadwaysted!
