The Broadwaysted Podcast Welcomes the Creators and Star of HVMLET
To be, or not to be... Broadwaysted? That was an easy question for our new #FriendsOfTheShow Tatiana Baccari, Wednesday Derrico, and Blair Baker of the upcoming production of HVMLET.
This week we're pouring out mimosa's while our guests discuss their intersectional feminist adaptation of Shakespeare's classic drama appearing at the SheNYC Festival.
#WhatHaveYouSeenThisWeek is basically us discussing Shakespeare films like the 2015 MACBETH with Michael Fassbender and Joss Whedon's 2012 MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. Game Master Kimberly leads us in an epic game of "Dirty Hands on a Hardbody" that pits Shakespeare knowledge versus Musical Theater Knowledge.
At some point we're talking about blood of lamb and seeking vengeance for curtains--so get thee to a listening device and check out this week's episode of Broadwaysted!
