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.
But NOW is your last chance to get in on the autograph giveaway above.

I interview Producer/Director/Writer Ashlee Latimer about her work on Be More Chill, Once On This Island, and Hadestown, her approach to life, and our mutual love of Darren Criss. I found her inspiring and I think you will too.

57: Be More Chill at the Guggenheim

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-eyx7f-a5e8da

On Monday, January 21st I went to a Works & Process event at the Guggenheim Museum. The Creatives from Be More Chill were there to discuss the show with Laura Heywood and a medical ethicist. The event was terrific and I was able to interview some fans, members of the panel, and two of the cast members who performed at the event.

Thanks to Works & Process and to my guests: Alex, Max, Diane, Laura Heywood, Will Roland, Joe Iconis, Chase Brock, and George Salazar. Music in this episode is from the Be More Chill Karaoke Contest and my own recording from Elsie Fest 2018. Cover image courtesy of Be More Chill.
