Join us for this trip down memory lane in which both Perrie and host Sally Fuller revisit some of their summer theatre camp days, favorite interviews, and more. Check out our show notes with some photos from these shows we're talking about on TheBroadwayGinger.com!

What a fun time!

I’m not the biggest musical fan but Sally and Ashley are such great hosts and give such excellent detail about every aspect of the topic they’re covering! Sally is such a caring interviewer and it’s really cool that she brings in different people with different perspectives of how these productions get put on.

Great interviews

From a first few episodes of Broadway commentary, the Ginger has upped her game to present great interviews. Guests have distinguished theater backgrounds and The Ginger gets great information about their current projects and endeavors.
