    This week’s guest is Andrew Bancroft AKA Jelly Donut with Freestyle Love Supreme Preme Preme! 
    Broadway is Back and so is Tony Award-winning FLS! Catch them at The Booth Theatre with their final performance on January 2nd… and then they’re taking the SHO on the road! Look out for FLS on tour in a city near you. 
    Deep cut - you can watch their Hulu documentary, “We Are Freestyle Love Supreme” and join the fun with the FLS Academy. 
    Andrew and multiple FLS castmates make cameos in a star-studded tick, tick… BOOM! And of course check out his fabulous band Moondrunk (Andrew Bancroft, Ashley Pérez Flanagan, and Yair Evnine).
    Now let’s go back to a time we were younger: for a second chance of hearing my conversation with Andrew from July 16th, 2020… recorded for my live YouTube series: The SHO Must Go On...line! 
    This is microphone 1…

    "Sunday" for Sondheim

    "Sunday" for Sondheim

    Hi friends, this week we’re honoring the life and legacy of Stephen Sondheim.
    The luminary musical theatre composer and lyricist passed away on Friday, November 26th, at the age of 91.
    Today I’m bringing you behind the scenes at Sunday for Sondheim, a tribute from the Broadway community. You’ll hear from Fergie L. Philippe, Erich Bergen, and Brian Stokes Mitchell about Sondheim’s impact on their lives… Lin-Manuel Miranda reads from Sondheim’s book: “Look, I Made a Hat!” and the Broadway community’s rendition of, “Sunday,” from Sunday in the Park with George sung in it’s entirety.
    To watch the performance, head over to bwaySHO.com.
    Thank you, Sondheim. There truly are giants in the sky.
