Not Oaxaca cheese, but a decent Monterrey Jack

I love the concept of having a musical theatre podcast entirely dedicated to making someone like musical theatre with each show that gets reviewed. Its relaxed tone makes musicals cool to have as topics of conversation. I also appreciate that it’s distinct from the other musical theatre podcasts hosted by 2 white men. Although the constant mispronunciation of “reprise” and frequent personal disagreements with the hosts’ opinions prevent it from being granted 5 stars by this reviewer, it’s still a great comfort to listen to and I’m happy to be a dedicated listener.

Really smart and bingeable

Been listening all day to these sharp, analytical and frequently hilarious conversations about musicals and musical theater writing, and I’m delighted and impressed. Great range of topics, covering popular and semi-obscure shows alike; this is everything I could hope for in a musical theater podcast.

Do a little research….

If you’re going to spend the time reviewing and critiquing a musical, do your research first and know a little more about the show. It’s embarrassing to hear you attempt to talk about Ragtime when you don’t even know some of the talking points and general information about the show. Shallow discussion and incompetent analysis.
