Sierra Boggess with Broadway Producer Harold Prince

Who’s ready for Broadwaycon?! I met the Broadwaycon Program Director, Sierra Boggess, at Broadway Flea, and here’s my interview with her.

But before that is a great story about Darren Criss that you won’t want to miss. All I have to say to Darren is:

And also, you CAN know me, dude! Just send me an email and you can be on the podcast. There’s really no reason to lie about it.

Oh, and if you want to have the same shirt I gave Darren, you can buy it here:

I dropped off these gifts at the stage door, and Etai sent me this photo as a thank-you on Twitter. Sadly, Ari’el’s shirt has been deemed “unauthorized Chet Baker merchandise” by Zazzle, but you can buy Etai’s shirt here:

And someone on Etai’s feed requested another Elsietastic shirt, which is available here:

32 & 33: Jenna Ushkowitz

I was so pleased to interview Jenna Ushkowitz, my second Elsie Fest alumna. I was dying to know how she wound up singing “Granger Danger” of all things at Elsie Fest 2017.

Jenna spoke generously about that and many other things including growing up on Broadway, being a fan, and of course Glee. We had such a great conversation that I had to divide it into two parts.

Part 1: https://elsiecast.podbean.com/e/32-jenna-ushkowitz-part-i/

Part 2: https://elsiecast.podbean.com/e/33-jenna-ushkowitz-part-ii/

We also talked about some of the things Jenna is working on now, like Hello Again, Epic Fail, and the Concert for America in Hartford (which featured Elsie alums from all three years!)

I made this t-shirt to celebrate Jenna’s love of a certain mega-musical:

And, when we had already talked for an hour, Jenna gave me ten more minutes to ask the Glee questions I’ve always wanted to ask. I can’t thank Jenna enough for her generosity of time and spirit, so I’ll just tell you to go listen to Epic Fail.
