The Theater People Podcast's Bonus Episode Welcomes WICKED's Mary Testa

On Monday, December 8, the Theater People Podcast welcomes Mary Testa. Over the course of Testa's nearly four decades in the New York Theater she's racked up 12 Broadway credits, 26 Off-Broadway credits, two Tony nominations, two Obie Awards, four Drama Desk nominations and an honorary Drama Desk for her years of outstanding performances on and off Broadway.

On the episode, Testa discusses her new CD "Have Faith," which is a multi-genre collaboration with Tony winning orchestrator Michael Starobin (NEXT TO NORMAL, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE). She also discusses her work with some of the most prolific and important composer/lyricists of her generation. That discussion includes collaborations with William Fin (IN TROUSERS, FALSETTOS, 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE) Ahrens and Flaherty (LUCKY STIFF, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, RAGTIME, ROCKY) and Michael John Lachiusa (MARIE CHRISTINE, THE WILD PARTY, GIANT, QUEEN OF THE MIST). The episode features music both from Testa's new CD and from her vast body of work.
