Welcome to this week’s episode of the And Scene Theater Podcast!
With Meghan still away (in Madagascar now!), Mike has the pleasure of bringing back two-time guest Robert W. Schneider. But this time, Rob has brought his podcast co-host, Kevin David Thomas! In Act 1, Mike, Rob, and Kevin discuss the latest innovation in musicals, the exciting casting news for Once On This Island, and another sad passing, this time the legendary Barbara Cook.
In Act 2, the guys discuss Rob and Kevin’s wonderful podcast Behind the Curtain: Broadway’s Living Legends. On their show, Rob and Kevin speak to the famous and not-as-famous professionals that have shaped professional theater in New York and around the country. From actors to composers to makeup artists to lawyers, their show is a living chronicle of Broadway history, and Mike gets to hear some of their best stories!
Do you have any great Broadway stories? Is there anyone you’d like to hear Rob and Kevin interview? Let us (and them!) know!! Rob’s Twitter account is @RobWSchneider, Kevin’s is @KevDavThom, and their show’s is @BroadwayCurtain.
