The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes the Legendary Tony Winner Alice Ripley
"You Don't Know" how excited we are for this episode because we are sitting down with the legendary Broadway star Alice Ripley!
This week we're pouring out MANCAN and Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila while "Auntie Alice" spills about her Tony Award-winning journey with the critically-acclaimed Next To Normal, her impressive resume of hit original musicals, and constantly cleaning her face when she played Fantine in Les Miserables.
Alice also dishes about the olfactory experience of working with Benjamin Walker on American Psycho, when she saw the Original Broadway run of Spring Awakening with Anthony Rapp, and the evolution of RIPLEY the band!
Game Master Kimberly introduces the "name dropping" game "I Will Never Leave You" with Lights of Broadway Show Cards and then we play "Time Warp" where we cast actors in shows that they weren't in the right time period to be in originally.
Alice also takes a trip to Kevin's Corner where she time travels, casts Muppets in Broadway Shows, and wows us with her non-theatre expertise.
We have a blast with Alice and we're so excited for her encore performance of her acclaimed show "Ripley Prescription" on Saturday, August 18 at 7:00 PM. Cover charges are $30-40 with $70 premium tickets (which include a signed poster and preferred seating). There is no food and drink minimum. For tickets, please visit www.TheGreenRoom42.com.
