    Ep 14 – Cry For Us All

    Ep 14 – Cry For Us All

    From the music writer of “Man of La Mancha”, Mitch Leigh, based on the critically acclaimed play “Hogan’s Goat”, we bring you “Cry For Us All”.  A dramatic musical telling the stories of Irish immigrants living in Brooklyn in the late 1800’s.  Somehow this hefty beast of a show was on Broadway at the same time as Hair and 1776, which is something to marvel at.  Grab your tissues and tune in for a truly wonderful ride. 


     


    Featured Recording: Cry For Us All Original Broadway Cast Recording – Project 3 Total Sound Stereo - 1970

    Ep 13 – Rex

    Ep 13 – Rex

    Before Six was even a twinkle in the imagination of the West End, there was Rex.  A musical about Henry VIII (and a couple of his wives) that was brought to Broadway with the legendary Richard Rodgers as the composer and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me) writing the lyrics.  This show has been forgotten to time, but we think his story needs to come to a head. (You know we had to!)


    Featured Recording: Rex Original Broadway Cast Recording – RCA -- 1976


    For the rights to produce the show, contact Sherman Yellen and Sheldon Harnick directly.

    Ep 12 – Wildcat

    Ep 12 – Wildcat

    A virgin to the Broadway stage, Lucille Ball stars in Wildcat! This unrefined gem was the product of Broadway legends Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh, and N. Richard Nash. They struck oil with the hit number "Hey, Look Me Over" but reviews declared the show crude nonetheless. See what all the drilling is about, hear Lucy sing, and stop us from making anymore oil puns in this description!


    Featured Recording: Wildcat Original Broadway Cast Recording – RCA Victor - 1961

Written by the team that brought you Finnian’s Rainbow, this 1951 show stars Yma Sumac singing in her signature exotica style as well as a young Barbara Cook among the talented cast!


    Featured Recording: Flahooley Original Broadway Cast Recording – Capitol Records - 1951

    Ep 10 – Hallelujah, Baby!

    Ep 10 – Hallelujah, Baby!

    A celebrated writing team:  Comden & Green (Applause, On the Town), Arthur Laurents (Gypsy, West Side Story), Jule Styne (Funny Girl, Peter Pan).  A legendary leading lady: Leslie Uggams (Roots, Anything Goes, even Deadpool)  Could this show, focused on the history of Black people in the US, be the gem we didn’t know we needed?  Take a listen and let us know what you think!


    Featured Recording: Original Broadway Cast Recording of Hallelujah, Baby!– 1967 – Columbia Records

Hidden Musical Theatre Gems with Charming Hosts

This fun podcast was made for any musical theatre enthusiast who wants to continue their education in the genre.

Jen and Mikey are clearly having a blast as charming, engaging hosts - their chemistry is perfect!

I highly recommend this podcast and can’t wait to hear more!

Love this!!

Love the hosts, love the podcast, love the show choices!! I’ve been obsessed with Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds since the 70s, what a delight to hear the 2-parter on this! Requests for future episodes: Cyrano (1973 w Christopher Plummer), Golden Rainbow (Steve & Eydie!), Say Darling, Freudiana, Poe... looking forward to hearing so much more!

Deep Dish Delicious! ,

Delicious!

A delightfully smart and quirky take on the shows which maybe didn't quite make it but leave a colorful legacy of delightful stories and songs. With humor, warmth and charisma, hosts Jen and Mikey bring you into their boudoir...parlor...pantry...wherever YOU feel most comfortable getting the dish!
