request also y’all are great

It’s not a musical but you guys need to do the Documentary Now! episode, Original Cast Album: Co-op

Request: Great Comet of 1812!!’

Great comet is my absolute favourite musical, and I wish you would do an episode about it.
It’s not as good as seeing it live, but there are decent bootlegs floating around the internet (particularly YouTube. There’s one that has been there for years)
