    Joan Lader, Cynthia Erivo, Donna Murphy, Patti LuPone : The Joe D Show

    Something to sing about: Broadway vocal coach Joan Lader receives a special Tony honor next month. She discusses how she went from performing and voiceover work (“I did one for toilet paper”) to teaching for the past 34 years. Lader helped Madonna prepare for "Evita" and worked with Hugh Jackman, who had role in the teacher's special Tony prize.  In this podcast, students Cynthia Erivo, a nominee for “The Color Purple,” and two-time Tony winners Donna Murphy and Patti LuPone tell why love and what they’ve learned from Lader.

    The Queen of the Nile is having a major moment.

    Ask Charles Busch, author and star of the play, "Cleopatra," now in a sold-out run at Theater for the New City though April 17.

    "Cleopatra seems to be reinvented every decade or so" in pop culture, says Busch, who's famous for his stylish and hilarious takes on Hollywood icons and heroines.

    Cleopatra is celebrated in a lavish number in Cirque du Soleil's Broadway production, "Paramour," launching April 16 at the Lyric.

    The Egyptian empress was name-checked on "Empire" in a story thread involving a new Antony and Cleopatra clothing line.

    Need more? Just asp!

    A new screenwriter has reportedly been hired for the Angelina Jolie film based on Stacy Schiff's vivid bio "Cleopatra: A Life."

    And, finally, the Lumineers' new album is called, what else, "Cleopatra." Following the interview with Busch, listen in to hear the  title song.

    David Tennant, Frank DiLella, Andy Karl and Orfeh : The Joe D Show Episode 41

    David Tennant, Frank DiLella, Andy Karl and Orfeh : The Joe D Show Episode 41

    Is there a “Doctor” in the house?

    David Tennant, of “Doctor Who” fame, stars in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s “Richard II,” now at Brooklyn Academy of Music. The royal drama is part of the RSC four-play “King and Country” cycle that includes “Henry IV, Parts I and II” and “Henry V.”

    The series runs through May 1. It arrives fresh from London, where Tennant’s stirring performance and long locks turned heads. “Why should’t Richard have long hair? He believes he is divinely ordained to be king,” Tennant says. “He doesn’t conform. He is neither man nor woman — something else, something greater, divine.” Listen in for more from Tennant about “Richard II” and his “Jessica Jones” supervillain Kilgrave.

    Also on the podcast: Show Biz After Hours, a theater talk show taped live at Birdland. Host Frank DiLella and his April 3 guests Andy Karl and Orfeh talk about show biz.
