#48 - Now Batting: Andy Karl

Read more

Andy Karl steps into the Batter's Box for Episode 48 of Break a Bat! Karl is an Olivier Award Winner and 3-time Tony Award nominee with more than a dozen Broadway credits to his name. One of those credits includes a performance that's beloved by our sports fans in Rocky the Musical, in which he portrayed the iconic Rocky Balboa. With other Broadway credits that include Legally Blonde, Jersey Boys, Pretty Woman, and Groundhog Day, Karl has some great behind the scenes stories about 'championing through' those roles as told to host Al Malafronte in this episode.

With an athletic background of his own, Karl also discusses working in percentages to make it through sometimes grueling Broadway schedules, as he says gearing yourself up for a show is in so many ways like gearing yourself up for a game. This mindset is not unlike what made Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. so successful for Karl's hometown Baltimore Orioles, and led to a fascinating conversation about what it would take a Broadway performer to achieve the equivalent of Ripken's record-setting streak of 2,632 consecutive performances on the field.

Hosted by Al Malafronte

Orfeh & Andy Karl: Pretty Woman, Legally Blonde, Legally Bound

Read more

This week I’m chatting with two of Broadway’s most powerful voices, Orfeh and Andy Karl. Tony and Grammy Award nominee Orfeh most recently starred as Kit De Luca in Pretty Woman the Musical on Broadway with her husband, Andy Karl, an Olivier Award winner and three-time Tony nominee, starring as Edward. The power couple share how they are continuing to create during the Covid pandemic, how they are helping to raise funds for local charities and the lasting impact of Broadway.  Plus, the duo gives a special performance of Pretty Woman’s “Rodeo Drive.”

She has a “powerhouse voice” (New York Times). He is “a theater world heartthrob” (New York Times). And together Orfeh and Andy Karl have had an impressively long run as one of Broadway’s best couples. Although they met while doing the Broadway production of Saturday Night Fever and were married in 2001, their irrepressible chemistry became the stuff of legend when they co-starred in Legally Blonde in 2007, which garnered Orfeh a Tony nomination. Karl earned his own Tony nods for Rocky, On the Twentieth Century and Groundhog Day (for which he received an Olivier Award). Fresh off their run in Pretty Woman as Kit De Luca and Edward Lewis, the power couple celebrates the release of their album with their hit show, Legally Bound.
