The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes the Legendary Carolee Carmello
This week we're preparing ourselves for the biggest weekend of the Broadway season (TONY WEEKEND!) by sitting down with Tony-nominated powerhouse performer Carolee Carmello! We're making Adam Rippon proud by pouring out Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc while Carolee spills about her impressive musical theatre career, how Parade almost passed her by (#REVIVEPARADE), and the water bottle that drove her bonkers in Mamma Mia! "What Have You Seen This Week?" finds us raving about Katrina Lenk in The Band's Visit and sharing our love for William Finn from the Press Preview of The Royal Family of Broadway at Barrington with #FriendsoftheShow Hayley Podschun, Kathy Fitzgerald, and A.J. Shively!
Game Master Kimberly leads us through the new games "Sweeney Was...(Attend the Tale of Someone Else!)" and "All The Broadwaysted Time" (with a flawed scoring system) and then Carolee spends some quality time in Kevin's Corner. Carolee shares how she succeeded without formal musical theatre training, how a wig helps her get in character, and how many weeks her family won on "Family Feud."
But WAIT--there's more! This week the Broadwaysted Crew and our friends at Goldstar are happy to bring you an amazing offer to perk up your "What Have You Seen This Week?" conversations!
