Great show

Enjoying this during lockdown- a bit of escapism. Would be interested to hear interviews Danielle Steers and Amy Trigg... would love to hear Amy’s perspective on having a disability in the commercial musical theatre industry. Would also be keen to hear more about the performers backgrounds and training, and how they came into the industry.

Fantastic insight into a world I knew little about!

Connor and Catherine are fantastic hosts in a show where their passion for theatre clearly shines through. I think it clearly shows when every week, their guests are clearly so comfortable to talk about their lives in this world in what feels like an effortless conversation. I honestly recommend this podcast to people who love theatre or even have no idea about anything to do with it like myself, I've honestly enjoyed learning whilst listening about shows that I have genuine interest in watching now. Keep up the good work guys!
