The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes BAT OUT OF HELL Choreographer Xena Gusthart
This week, the Broadwaysted Crew is pulling out our best dance moves because we're sitting down and having a few drinks and a lot of laughs with choreographer and dancer Xena Gusthart!
We're pouring out Tanteo Habanero Tequila and whiskey mixed with gluten-free lemonade (what lemonade has gluten?!) while Xena spills about bringing Bat Out Of Hell from the West End to New York City Center, her process as a choreographer, and why red wine is the best pre-workout (but totally not vegan).
Game Master Kimberly has us stretching our creative muscles with the game "Bat Out of Hell or Something Else," Xena makes her way through the confusion that is "Kevin's Corner," and then Kimberly helps us plan a "Show Card Dinner" with Lights of Broadway Show Cards. We also chat about choreographing for the stage vs. screen, which international audience claps on the "1" and "3," and Xena's best advice for young dancers. We have an incredible time with Xena so grab your headphones and your favorite cocktail and join in the fun as Xena Gusthart gets Broadwaysted!
