PODCAST: THE BROADWAY GINGER Talks CAMELOT, Pasek and Paul, and More in Season Finale

Entitled "If Ever I Would Leave You - Songwriting Duos," this is the 10th episode

PODCAST: THE BROADWAY GINGER Talks CAMELOT, Pasek and Paul, and More in Season Finale

THE BROADWAY GINGER PODCAST team is wrapping up their first season today with a look at a cornerstone of Broadway: great songwriting duos.

The American Musical Theatre was built on great songwriters whose names can't be said without their partners'. OKLAHOMA!, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, and CINDERELLA might as well be credited to one hyphenated name, Rodgers-and-Hammerstein. Today, they take a look at some equally inseparable duos with an emphasis on Lerner & Loewe and their masterpiece, CAMELOT.

"Join us as we learn about the battle of the Richards (Burton and Harris), how much the Tonys committee snubbed the original show, and why CAMELOT seems to be universal homeschooler sewing music. Check out our show notes on TheBroadwayGinger.com for some bonus Broadway videos and fun facts! ...while you're there, take a look at our survey and let us know what you think of the BGP!"

From 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."
