Education has always been an important part of my life, which is why I continue to keep keep learning as much as I can. When I was asked to interview Laurence Maslon, an expert on Broadway/Musical Theatre, I jumped at the opportunity. We talked about teaching musical theatre history, famous students, favorite Broadway shows, PBS specials, & so much more! Laurence hosts the weekly NPR radio show Broadway to Main Street, which airs Sundays at 3pm on NPR affiliate WPPB/88.3FM!
For the past 10 years I have been enjoying the talents of Sean Patrick Monahan in Charles Busch's Times Square Angel. Now, Sean Patrick is presents his original musical DIVA: Live From Hell, a devilish new musical that charts a high school musical nerd’s descent into madness. I'm beyond excited when I called, Sean Patrick answered! We had fun talking about everything from DIVAS to legends to angels! DIVA: Live From Hell will run from 3/23-4/9 at The Theater for the New City!

Hands down the best part about A Very Sordid Wedding was the way Del set it up. For those of us who were already fans of the Sordid Lives play/film/TV series, it's a real homecoming. For someone who has never seen anything Sordid Lives, Del has perfectly outlined who everyone is, what their relationship is to one another, & a brief history of their storyline. Despite a few cast changes, everything I love about the Sordid Lives brand was still there!
