I chat with Jason SweetTooth Williams about his off-Broadway musical Broadway Bounty Hunter, opening this summer, and his Broadway musical Be More Chill, how he got his start in musicals, and what it’s like to wear those tighty-whities in front of 900 people every night.

I’m sure some of you have noticed by now that I asked you all for money, received the money, and promptly disappeared. You’re probably wondering why.
First, a HUGE thank-you to everyone who has contributed to my Indiegogo. It means so much to know you care that my podcast is out there, which is another reason I feel compelled to explain my absence.
Basically, I’ve had a bunch of personal crap going on that has used up all my time and motivation. First, I had a family member going through some stuff that is not my business to share. Then that mostly resolved and I tried to set up an interview that didn’t come through as quickly as I’d hoped.
Then I went to the hospital.
NG tube: pretty sure it stands for “not good.”
I won’t go into the details (believe me, you don’t want to know) but I’m fine now. And yes, that’s an Elsie Fest ’17 t-shirt under that gown. I am ALWAYS #onbrand.
So I’m recovering from that and my family member is dealing with the other thing that is mostly resolved but not completely and it all has me a bit distracted and I apologize because you all REALLY came through for me and then I dropped the ball. And I wanted you to know that Elsie Cast is important to me, all the more so because you are now collectively involved. It’s just not more important than my health and my family.
Once these things resolve I’ll be back to work on the podcast. More Be More Chill stuff is coming and I’m excited for Hadestown. And then we’ll have the Tonys and then we can start waiting for Elsie Fest ’19!
In conclusion: THANK YOU for your support of the podcast! I’ll get back to it as soon as I can.
Those of you who only follow the blog may not be aware that I’m currently doing an Indiegogo. And there’s a giveaway going on for a few more hours!

In other news, today I became an official member of the Broadway Makers Alliance.The Broadway Makers Alliance is an organization of creatives who’ve taken a passion for Broadway and created high-quality products and services for the Broadway and theatre community. The Broadway Makers Alliance has created an online marketplace for their members to help the theatre-loving consumer find Broadway related products and services in a one-stop shop. They are also dedicated to the development of their “makers”, providing leadership, networking and resources.
I’m really excited to join friends of the podcast Broadway Up Close
, Coloring Broadway
, Dr. Drama
and Laura Heywood
, among other great creators who live to Make More Art about Broadway. Hopefully I’ll be able to bring you more makers as guests on the podcast and more giveaways in the future.
All of this does require funding, though, so please, if you can, give $5 to the Indiegogo
so I can keep this project going. We’re 94% of the way to the goal, and as soon as I make my goal I’ll start doing free giveaways again.
