VIDEO: Watch Premiere of THE CHAOS TWINS with Special Guest Dominique Morisseau
As part of BroadwayWorld's ever-expanding commitment to including more of the theatrical community in creating content, as well as amplifying important and diverse voices, we're excited to announce that we're bringing one of Instagram's must-watch broadcasts onto BroadwayWorld TV: "The Chaos Twins" with Sasha Hutchings and Nik Walker.
What's it all about? "In a world of extremes, where the divides are deep and the struggles are real, sometimes, the only way back to the calm... is Chaos," say Sasha and Nik.
"Enter The Chaos Twins. Join us, two Broadway artists/goofballs, as we break through the noise and break down current events, with our unique brand of humor and insight. A talk show filled with special guests, non-sequiturs, stories, trivia and more, all aimed to help us find our true north again... by any means necessary."
