PODCAST: 110 IN THE SHADE gets the Spotlight on THE BROADWAY GINGER PODCAST Episode 7

With their first season over halfway completed, THE BROADWAY GINGER PODCAST team is shedding the spotlight on underrated musicals with a deep dive into 110 IN THE SHADE.

There are few better moments for theatre people than discovering our favorite songwriting team has written more than just that one hit show we love (looking at you, Lin-Manuel Miranda). In Monday's episode, Sally and Ashley discuss when they have experienced such moments with Lin himself, Andrew Lippa, and Tom Jones/Harvey Schmidt of THE FANTASTICKS.

Join us on November 9 in "Simple Little Things - Underrated Works from Broadway's Best" for an Audra McDonald fangirl sesh as we deep dive into Jones and Schmidt's lesser-known but awesome 110 IN THE SHADE. Visit our show notes for bonus videos of Audra, plus more fun facts for theatre nerds on TheBroadwayGinger.com.

Their previous episodes have featured deep dives into LES MISERABLES, PETER PAN, LITTLE WOMEN, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, and LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS.

From Atlanta-based theatre journalist (and redhead) Sally Henry Fuller, THE BROADWAY GINGER PODCAST combines fandom, history, and a critic's take on the Broadway landscape from the Golden Age to modern-day. Every Monday, Fuller and co-host Ashley Elliott (director/writer) discuss a few musicals centered around a chosen theme and take a deep dive into one, covering everything from the plot to fun facts about the original cast.

"My chief goal of THE BROADWAY GINGER PODCAST is to invite anyone on the theatre fan spectrum from the mildly interested (like my husband) to die-hards to join us for entertaining and enriching conversations," Fuller says.

"It's supposed to feel like one of those greenroom chats from early community theatre days. There are podcasts out there discussing important, world-changing things, but we are here to tell you that this one is pure, unadulterated escapism."
