George Farmer. Ryan and Kevin were delighted to have George Farmer in the studio to discuss how he got to broadway and how he feels about lending a hand to aspiring performers. George is truly a musician’s musician. He clearly loves everything about the industry. Enjoy!
Chris Fenwick. Chris was the Music Director of the Tony award winning production of FUN HOME, and is currently on staff at City Center as the Music Director of Encores! Off-Center. He sat down with us in the studio after his hugely successful run of SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, that starred Jake Gyllenhaal and an all-star cast. Listen in to find out how he chooses to learn rather than panic in stressful situations, and why he has achieved so much so early in his career.
Multi award winning producer, Barbara Whitman sits down with us to discuss her most recent Tony Award winning show Fun Home, and the over 150 people it takes to support the 9 actors onstage. She also delves into some of the attributes that have made her such a success on Broadway, including being a mother. We also chat about theatre being an “industry of relationships,” and just where this industry is headed next. Barbara does a great job of demystifying the role of the producer, while offering great advice for those who wish to follow a path into producing.
