    Andrew Samonsky

    Andrew Samonsky

    A big fan of the Disney Parks and Star Wars, Drama Desk Award-nominee Andrew Samonsky (Lempika, South Pacific, Come From Away, Bridges of Madison County) joins David to share his favorites stories and memories of going to Disney. Andrew is from California, so went to Disneyland as a kid, including a fun early birthday trip where he stayed at the Disneyland Hotel but wasn't able to sleep because he was too excited. Listen as he shares what made Disneyland magical for him as a kid, and what he finds charming as a "young at heart" when he returns to the Magic Kingdom today. Andrew and David discuss the quintessential Disneyland, and how the Anaheim park was their "true Disney." Andrew's love for the Disney Parks is contagious, especially his love of seeing Mickey Mouse in the Parks (and a fun story of seeing the Princesses), going on "Rise of the Resistance" (and his deep wish to meet Darth Vader), eating churros, and visiting "Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway." Andrew explains how he and Kate Reinders (High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Wicked, Gypsy, Something Rotten) ended up getting married at Walt Disney World, and how their trips to the Parks have shifted since having their wonderful kid, Luke. Not a stranger to Disney onstage, Andrew starred in the National Tour of "On The Record," a Broadway-style musical revue of the Disney musical catalogue (prompting this episode's game "On the Samonsky Record"), as well as the US premiere of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" starring as Phoebus. What is Andrew's favorite Disney song? Listen to this episode of "E-Ticket to Broadway" to find out!

    Vanessa Williams

    Vanessa Williams

    The one and only Vanessa Williams joins David for this episode of "E-Ticket to Broadway" to share her love of all things Disney. This Tony, Emmy, & Grammy-Award Nominee explains how her connection with Disney began while she was still in the womb, and why her Disney+ avatar is Thumper. Vanessa grew up watching Disney films, especially "Bambi," and tuned in every Sunday night to watch "The Wonderful World of Disney" on TV. Like her friend David, she discusses her love of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," as well as movies from the Renaissance of Disney like "The Lion King" & "The Little Mermaid"--and just like her parents passed along their love of The Mouse, Vanessa has passed along the magic to her children, even allowing her kids to be "Disney spoiled" (she also sings Disney songs to her grandson). When it comes to the Disney Theme Parks, Vanessa is a big fan--she admits that she has always loved rides, production, and fantasy, so her trips to the Parks are incredibly special, and she wisely states: "If you get bored at Disney, something's wrong with you." An entertainment icon, Vanessa shares her experience of first being passed over by Disney, to then being valued as an artist and recording "Colors of the Wind," performing at Walt Disney World, and voicing many Disney characters. "Turning Red" is now one of Vanessa's favorite movies, and on "E-Ticket to Broadway" shares her enthusiasm for EPCOT, the food and the hotels at the Parks, and which attractions she most enjoys. David & Vanessa share a lot of laughs on this episode chatting about their mutual love of Disneyland, and together play "Save the Colors of the Wind," discuss David's casting idea of Vanessa as Snow White's Evil Queen on Broadway, and determine the track list for Vanessa's Disney Album. Which job at Walt Disney World would she most like to apply for? Listen to find out!

    Alli Mauzey

    Alli Mauzey

    To say Broadway's Alli Mauzey (Kimberly Akimbo, Wicked, Cry-Baby, Hello Dolly) is a fan of Disneyland is a great understatement, and on this episode of "E-Ticket to Broadway," she and David discuss their mutual love of the OG Theme Park. Alli's family lived on the future site of Disneyland and shares incredible stories of her family meeting Walt Disney himself, and how her mother watched Disneyland being built. Disneyland was such a huge part of Alli's childhood--from meeting her friends after school at Snow White's Grotto and swing dancing at Carnation Plaza, to watching her sister perform in 'Fantasmic,' to tasting caviar for the very first time...at Club 33. A true Disney fan, Alli credits signing along to Jodi Benson on "The Little Mermaid" soundtrack with helping her find her voice, and still feels strongly connected to her family when she visits the Park. Besides her dream of singing "Part of Your World" at Disneyland, Alli shares her love of Peter Pan's Flight, "Frozen 2," & "Bambi," and how she must always get a giant pickle on Main Street USA (and sometimes a clam chowder bread bowl). She and David discuss the magic of the Disney Theme Parks, and also the final moment in "Kimberly Akimbo" which is such a testament to the power of the Disney Parks. Before they play "Screw Loose for Disney," Alli discusses who she would most like to go to Disneyland with: Glinda from "Wicked," Lenora from "Cry-Baby," or Pattie from "Kimberly Akimbo." Which part of the staging of "Kimberly Akimbo" reminds Alli of "Pirates of the Carribean?" Listen to find out!
