25: Krysta Rodriguez | Favorite Liza Minnelli Performances

Your Fave’s Faves

On this episode of Your Fave Fave's I'm chatting with Krysta Rodriguez who stars as Liza Minnelli in the Netflix limited series Halston, a show about fashion's glamorous and troubled 1970s golden boy. And she's INCREDIBLE! I jumped on the show right away and as soon as she came on screen she stole the show. Krysta shares her top 5 Liza Minnelli performances - get a pen and paper! You're going to want to YouTube these after listening!--We were tired of all the health and fitness apps that made us feel worse about ourselves, that featured trainers who didn't look like us or talk like us (hello, drill sergeant much?), or that assumed we had hundreds of dollars to spend on trendy equipment in order to make their workouts actually, well, work. That's why we created RISE Fitness, to build a community of folks who love to move their body and spark joy in their lives, without all the body-shaming and exclusion. Check it out by going to https://bit.ly/letsriseappCheck out our latest limited series podcast, Talking Body with Amy Porterfield! Amy has experienced massive success in both her business and personal life, but behind every accomplishment lingered a nagging suspicion that she wasn’t living up to some invisible standard of how she should look. Now she’s on a mission to discover exactly where that little voice inside her head came from, and - together with some new friends and fresh perspectives - how she can vanquish it once and for all.

#40 - Krysta Rodriguez

E-Ticket to Broadway

"Timon turned out to be my Father." Krysta Rodriguez (In the Heights, The Addams Family, A Chorus Line, "Smash") is a true Disneyland fan--she grew up with the Park in her backyard, and distinctly remembers feeling the magic radiating from the parking lot as a kid. On this episode of "E-Ticket to Broadway," Krysta and David discuss their love for Walt's Park, and Krysta shares how Disney intersected with her childhood--from using her allowance to buy one souvenir at the Parks (usually a figurine to add to her collection, and not Pirates' gold like she really wanted), to celebrating Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World when she was six years old, to loving "The Little Mermaid" so much that in addition to performing the role wherever and whenever she could, she dressed as Ariel for three different Halloweens in a row. Krysta dives into her love of the Disney movies of the 1960's and 70's (especially "101 Dalmatians"), and well as the food and snacks of the Disney Parks (especially those frozen bananas). Listen as Krysta shares her favorite stories of working with Julie Andrews and going to Disneyland with her, and playing Meg in Hercules in New York City while having Susan Egan as a mentor. Admittedly, Krysta shares that she "got in trouble at Disneyland like kids do at the mall" and shares a fun story of Tinkerbell's flight during the fireworks--something Wednesday Addams may also love. This episode features the game "Pulled in a New Disney Direction" in which Krysta needs to determine which ride or attraction David is referencing that is based on the guests going in a new direction; and they share their mutual love of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, miniatures in the Parks, and Fantasmic. Should you go on a "First Date" at Disneyland? Listen as Krysta shares all!

God & Other Delicacies

A diagnosis of breast cancer at 30 years old; her physical and spiritual transformation; growing up an Orange County Christian; stories from Broadway and Hollywood; and the dawning of her self-realization, independence, and new life perspective.   Actor, singer and Broadway star Krysta Rodriguez (Stage: In The Heights, The Addams Family, First Date, Spring Awakening... Screen: Smash, Chasing Life, Quantico, Daybreak) generously hops on the phone with Nick from her place in New York City, and she tells a powerful story about her evolution of faith, and the physical and spiritual transformation she undertook after battling breast cancer at just 30 years old.  Nick and Krysta became friends during their time on Trial & Error together, but they actually met a few years before that on a pilot, just a few months before Krysta would get her cancer diagnosis.  It's an extraordinary journey to listen to, and Krysta is funny, honest, raw, revealing and self-assured as she confidently guides us through her faith and doubt, the centering existential threat of cancer, and the self-revelations of her survival.  It's an absolute honor to share her story with you. At one point, Krysta speaks about the blog she wrote regarding her year battling cancer.  Here's the link: ChemoCouture And here is a link to a powerful interview with Krysta (fit with a tweet and picture of the two of us from Trial & Error) where she talks about what womanhood means in the face of cancer and chemotherapy: TheBreastCancerSite.com Finally, and gleefully, here is the link to an episode of the Christian Kids' TV show that Krysta performed on when she was oh so young: Colby's Clubhouse (Note: I chose this one because Krysta has the starring storyline of the episode, even though the film quality is gritty; but there's a wealth of great Krysta stuff all over these episodes, and it is delightful to watch how her talent stands out next to her peers.)   Krysta's Instagram: @krysta_rod Official Website: nicholasdagosto.com Instagram: @nicholasdagosto #GodsDelicateShow Twitter: @nicholasdagosto #GodsDelicateShow   Music by Sean Whalen, Art by Alexandra Delano
