“‘Backstage Pass' will give listeners unprecedented access to the artists shaping today's musical theatre landscape,” Attridge and Macs said. “We do deep-dive interviews about an artist's work, explore their background, and even design a special game – unique to each artist – that allows listeners to get to know them on an intimate (and often hilarious) level. This podcast allows us to celebrate a community of people who believe that art, which challenges us, is worth celebrating.”
