The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Tour's Jenna Rubaii
This week, the Broadwaysted Crew is thrilled to be joined by Jenna Rubaii from the 50th Anniversary Tour of Jesus Christ Superstar!
We're pouring out Montelobos Mezcal, Milagro Tequila, and Barr Hill Gin with a "tear-and-share" lime as Jenna spills about the exciting, music-focused Anniversary Tour of Jesus Christ Superstar, flying around the country upside-down in American Idiot, and the differences in international audiences' reactions.
Game Master Kimberly leads the group in the classic "Heads Up" and then introduced the new game "The New Extraordinary Girl" and we play both with our favorite: Lights of Broadway Show Cards (thanks Squigs!) We also rave about balloon ballets, argue about what classic 80s movies are required viewing ("Labyrinth" and "Goonies," right?!), and drool over holiday food in "Kevin's Corner."
We have an amazing time with Jenna and you will too when you see her touring the country in Jesus Christ Superstar, so before you get tickets take a listen as Jenna Rubaii gets Broadwaysted (and then get your tickets at https://ustour.jesuschristsuperstar.com)
