The 'Broadwaysted' Podcast Welcomes Dancer, JOSEPH... Choreographer JoAnn M. Hunter
This week, the Broadwaysted Crew are all feeling like Jacob's Favorite Sons because we're sharing cocktails and laughs with the choreographer of the West End's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, JoAnn M. Hunter!
We're pouring out Milagro Tequila this week as JoAnn spills about the new London production of Joseph... with dance arrangements, her incredible career from Performer to Choreographer and Director, and the skills and mindset she thinks every dancer should bring into the audition room.
Game Master Kimberly leads us through the classic "Dirty Hands on a Hardbody," JoAnn makes her way through the muddy waters of "Kevin's Corner," and then Kimberly introduces a new game of imagination (and Lights of Broadway Show Cards) called "Curtains."
JoAnn also shares how Nathan Lane summarized the beginning of the show to latecomers in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, the new show she's developing called SuperYou the Musical by Lourdes Lane, and audience reactions she'll never forget. We have an amazing time with JoAnn so pour yourself a refreshment and join in as JoAnn M Hunter gets Broadwaysted!
