In this episode, Tyson reports back on 3 small-scale shows he saw in NYC, and we have a good time chatting about how we’d cast a hypothetical concert of our current favorite Broadway leading ladies.
But first, Disaster! Tyson was lucky enough to see a recent Actors Fund benefit concert of this fun Seth Rudetsky and Jack Plotnik show and especially enjoyed with Jennifer Simard’s hilarious performance.
Then it’s hypothetical time. We recently strolled down memory lane to enjoy the Divafest and 90s fashion extravaganza that was the 1998 My Favorite Broadway: Leading Ladies concert featuring Liza, Marin Mazzie and baby Anna Kendrick among others. We imagine who would be awesome in a modern version of such an event and choose songs for them to sing. Tyson reveals his amazing vision for a gender-flipped production of Camelot.
Check out some video highlights from the Off-Broadway production of Disaster!.
Good news! Music Vault has the 1998 My Favorite Broadway: Leading Ladies concert from Carnegie Hall on YouTube!
