    Margo Seibert has proven herself to be a uniquely captivating and versatile performer, writer, and activist. After originating the role of “Jane” in Broadway’s first a cappella musical, IN TRANSIT, she recently co-starred in Dave Malloy’s world premiere OCTET at Signature Theatre in New York and released her debut album “77th Street”on Yellow Sound Label . She is perhaps best known for her critically acclaimed performance as “Adrian” in the Broadway musical ROCKY.
    After graduating with a degree in International Relations from American University, Margo began her acting career in the D.C. Theatre scene, seamlessly transitioning between plays and musicals at Signature Theatre, Folger Theatre, Ford’s Theatre, Olney Theatre Center and the Shakespeare Theatre. Margo moved to New York after appearing in Mary Zimmerman’s CANDIDE at the Goodman in Chicago, and has continued her multifaceted career performing in plays at Playwright’s Horizons Rattlestick, The Women's Project, and Weston Playhouse, and starring in musicals at The Paper Mill Playhouse, A.C.T, and Two River Theater. She can also been seen on television in “Boardwalk Empire,” “Elementary,” “Instinct,” and “The Good Cop.”
    Margo is also the co-founder of the organization RACKET, whose goal is to make as much noise about periods as it takes to normalize the conversation and draw attention to under-prioritized menstrual hygiene needs. Since inception, Margo has collected hundreds of thousands of menstrual hygiene products for transient menstruators in need, and helped eliminate the tax on those products in NY State.

    Thank you for taking the time to listen to this episode. We appreciate your support!
    Tommy is a high school theatre teacher by day and musical theatre YouTuber by night (youtube.com/musicalmash). He’s been uncontrollably excited about musical theatre ever since his grandmother gifted him a VHS box set of MGM’s “That’s Entertainment” for his seventh birthday. A fervent musical theatre analyst, Tommy enjoys the entire spectrum of shows – from the golden oldie toe-tappers to newfangled pop-rock pseudo-operas. If he’s not in a theatre or enjoying the latest cast album, you can find him hiking the greater Rocky Mountain trails, playing board games with friends, or belting Merman at the local piano bar.

    23 - Eliza Ohman, Performer/Choreographer

    Thank you for listening to this episode. We hope you enjoy it!

    A note about this week's episode: This is a recorded conversation from Broadway Podcast Network HQ at BroadwayCon 2020. Stay tuned for Part 2 of this conversation where we'll talk about her role as Associate Choreographer for the Broadway production of SIX.

    Eliza Ohman is a New York City based performer and the US Associate Choreographer for SIX: The Musical. Most recently seen in the Chita Rivera Award winning Original Broadway Company of King Kong and previously Dance Captain and Universal Swing in Hamilton: An American Musical on Broadway, she had the great privilege of working closely with the original creative team and assisted in setting Hamilton’s 2nd National Tour. As Dance Captain she taught new company members the show, ran rehearsals for the offstage company, and assisted in the auditions for all four North American productions.
    Eliza began dancing at the age of 3 in her home state of Colorado. She trained at a local studio and toured nationally with Prof. Robert L. Reed’s tap company the St. Louis Hoofers Club. After high school she moved to New York City where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Media, Culture, and the Arts from The King’s College and received further training from the Professional Semester Program at Broadway Dance Center. Through BDC’s program she gained representation from Clear Talent Group and booked her first NYC job in the Ensemble of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. 
    In addition to theatre, Eliza also works commercially. Some career favorites include the Emmy award winning Fosse/Verdon (FX), The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon), Saturday Night Live (NBC), Dispatches from Elsewhere (AMC), America’s Got Talent (NBC), Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO), and more! She’s danced in a number of music videos, one of her favorites being Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You”—a day where she spent the morning teaching Carly Rae, Tom Hanks, and Justin Bieber the choreography, and the afternoon filming outside in New York City on the coldest recorded day of 2016.
    Through all these experiences, Eliza has developed close relationships with award winning director/choreographers such as Andy Blankenbuehler, Thomas Kail, Marguerite Derricks, Kat Burns, Linda Haberman, Denis Jones, Noemie Lafrance, Susan Misner, and Drew McOnie. These experiences encourage Eliza to remain as diverse as possible in both her training and teaching. She’s an enthusiastic teacher who focuses on the importance of storytelling through dance. She’s taught at studios/programs around the country, but most recently at Broadway Dance Center, Marymount Manhattan College, and is a guest faculty member for Intrigue Dance Intensive. 
    Always looking to grow as an artist, Eliza continues to train, teach, and perform in New York. Instagram - @elizaohman.

    22 - Stevie Coleman, Account Executive (SpotCo)

    Thank you for listening to this episode. We hope you enjoy it!

    A note about this week's episode: We sat down with Stevie before the CoronaVirus shut down Broadway and you'll notice that our conversation reflects that. We are sad to hear that Broadway has been shut down through April 12, 2020 but we know this decision has been made for the health and wellness of the entire Broadway community, as well as New York City; and for that we are grateful. That being said, we hope that when Broadway does reopen, you'll be able to support these New York shows, like Beetlejuice!

    Stevie Coleman is an Account Executive at SpotCo, a leading advertising and marketing agency that specializes in entertainment. In her role, she facilitates internal and external communications for Broadway shows like Beetlejuice, off-Broadway shows like Trevor, and institutions like Lincoln Center Theater and Audible. Favorite projects during her time at SpotCo include the 2019 Tony Campaign for the Ferryman and Beetlejuice’s 31 consecutive days of fan activations during the month of October 2019. Prior to joining the agency, she held positions at Carolina Performing Arts, Derris brand consultancy, and Bronze Magazine. 
    Outside of the office, Stevie takes in shows for both business and pleasure. In the future, she aspires to produce theater that tells meaningful, inclusive, and original stories that both illuminate and celebrate our differences.
