Krystina Alabado Talks Baseball and Broadway On BREAK A BAT!

The episode features a guest appearance from her husband/diehard baseball fan/fellow Broadway veteran, Robert Lenzi.

"Fetch" is happening in The Batter's Box, as Krystina Alabado joins BREAK A BAT for their 80th episode!

Listen here:

Alabado starred as Gretchen Wieners in Mean Girls on Broadway from March 2019 until the show's final performance in March 2020, and has authored a phenomenal stage career that now spans more than a decade. Her other credits include the touring production of Spring Awakening, American Idiot and American Psycho on Broadway, and Lazarus at the New York Theatre Workshop.

In addition to everything Alabado has accomplished on stage, she's also a tremendous Arizona Diamondbacks fan! This week she joins host Al Malafronte to revisit some of her fondest memories growing up in Phoenix during the glory years of one of baseball's most successful expansion teams. She's currently living out every diehard fan's bucket list with a mission to visit every Major League stadium (and even keeps score when she goes!) Her stories from the stage and stadium are nothing short of awesome, as we talk about anything from the Diamondbacks' 2001 World Series run to her experiences working with both Tina Fey and David Bowie.

In the spirit of the podcast's theme, they also brought back 7th Inning Stretch trivia, as Alabado tested her baseball and Broadway knowledge in an attempt to join the prestigious 'Winner's Circle' for the podcast's trivia elite much like her fellow Plastics, Kate Rockwell and Jonalyn Saxer. The episode even had a guest appearance from her husband/diehard baseball fan/fellow Broadway veteran, Robert Lenzi (South Pacific, Tuck Everlasting, Tina) who served as her lifeline during the game. This conversation was a blast for the Break a Bat crew and epitomizes a true celebration of their two greatest passions.
