Welcome to this week’s episode of the And Scene Theater Podcast!
In Act 1, we have news of Broadway’s financial health, a possible frontrunner for the 2018 Tonys, and the merits of post-performance talkbacks (http://www.onstageblog.com/columns/2017/5/24/david-mamet-doesnt-want-you-to-talk-about-david-mamet-after-seeing-a-david-mamet-play).
In Act 2, we wanted to have a little fun and discuss those showtunes that don’t find themselves on Best of Broadway albums, but remain near and dear to our hearts. We call them Broadway B Sides! (And for those of you who have no idea what a “B Side” is, don’t worry, we explain that, too!) Listen in as we discuss why certain lesser-known songs from musicals as diverse as Guys and Dolls to Hedwig and the Angry Inch strike a chord with us.
What are your favorite Broadway B Sides? Is there a little-loved song that really moves you, even on your hundredth time listening to it? Let us know!
