Broadway’s Backbone is a podcast dedicated to the men and woman of the ensemble: the chorus of dancers, singers, and actors that are the foundation of every Broadway musical. These often-unsung gypsies are the hardest working people on the boards and are Broadways backbone. Each episode interviews a Broadway vet about their life, career and dreams, but also delves into the real topics that aren’t always shared. The life of a gypsy maybe full of passion, but not always filled with glamour. Each guest shares intimate details about their journey. There is no mud slinging, but a maybe a little dirt. It’s hosted by Brad Bradley, a Broadway Performer himself, he has worked with most of the guests, so he knows what questions to ask. It’s a real look into the life that so many kids dream of. This podcast is in honor of the folks of the ensemble and the people who plan to be them.

Real + Honest

Love Brad's take on shingin the spotlight on the ensembles that make EVERY Bway show possible. The conversations are super enlightening- Definetly binge worthy!

My favorite theater podcast

I think what I like most about Broadway’s Backbone is that it doesn’t shy away from the difficulties of getting to, being on, and staying on Broadway. Guests get real and dig deep. This fantastic podcast goes beyond the Peggy Sawyer fantasy and gets at the heart of what it means to be a working actor in New York.

Disappointing

I love some of the other podcasts (like the Ensemblist) that feature those who keep Broadway together, but this one isn't as interesting to me. I've listened to the interviews for those I really really love, even though the sound quality is often horrible, but I'm done with it now.
