    Ellie and Haley interview LIANA HUNT! 

    Liana can be seen on Broadway right now as Lorraine Baines McFly—Marty’s mom in Back to the Future. And yes, we ask her if Lorraine has a crush on her son like she does in the movie. But you also might know her from Mamma Mia! Because she toured with the show and made her Broadway debut as Sophie. She also starred as Katherine Plumber in Newsies, toured with Wicked and Bright Star and is part of a sketch comedy show called SHIZ: Broadway Meets Sketch Comedy.

    Liana tells us about:

    ⭐️ Putting her own spin on a beloved character

    ⭐️ What it was like moving from small-town Vermont to NYC

    ⭐️ Making her tour and Broadway debut with Mamma Mia!

    Episode 30: Katie Rose Clarke

    Ellie and Haley interview KATIE ROSE CLARKE! 

    Katie Rose Clarke doesn’t do things small. She made her Broadway debut in a little show called The Light in the Piazza when she was 21. She’s been Glinda A LOT. In fact, she holds the record as the longest-running Glinda on Broadway. Now, she’s hanging out with a little Sondheim show named Merrily We Roll Along. Which means she’s taking the stage eight times a week alongside Jonathan Groff, Danielle Radcliffe and a whole bunch of talented people. 

    Katie tells us about:

    ⭐️ How she got her start in theater!

    ⭐️ Her record-setting time in Wicked!

    ⭐️ What Jonathan Groff and Daniel Radcliffe are really like! 

    ⭐️ The Sondheim Renaissance happening on Broadway right now!

    Note from our parents: This episode was recorded in October, while the SAG-AFTRA strike was still active.

    Episode 29: Jose Llana

    Episode 29: Jose Llana

    Ellie and Haley interview JOSE LLANA! 

    Jose leads a big, new take on what a Broadway show looks like in Here Lies Love—an immersive show that makes the audience a part of the performance. But before that, he graced the stage in Rent, Flower Drum Song, Wonderland, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and The King and I — not once, but twice. And he’s been seen on your screens in Sex and the City and Hitch, and is a recording artist. Plus, as always, a whole lot more. 

    Jose tells us about:

    ⭐️ What to expect at an immersive Broadway show

    ⭐️ What it’s like playing Ferdinand Marcos

    ⭐️ His trick for getting the audience to play along

    ⭐️ His advice for theater kids!

She was everyone’s favorite Princess in Emojiland, everyone’s favorite Cindy Lou Who in Who’s Holiday AND is the creator of two broadway.com vlogs, a digital short series, two books, two solo shows and the album Rule Your Kingdom.



    But before she did all that, she won an Olivier Award for her West End debut as Inez in Zorro the Musical. No biggie. 



    We’ve seen her on stage, we’ve seen her on TV, we’ve seen her at BroadwayCon and now we’re so excited to have her on our podcast! 



    Lesli tells us about:

    ⭐️ Missing Emojiland after the shutdown

    ⭐️ How to deal with negative online comments. 

    ⭐️ Which one she’d keep — Star Wars or Muppets?
