#7 - The Untold Stories of The Longacre with Richard Maltby Jr. Part 3

The Untold Stories of Broadway

In the final episode of the three-part Untold Stories of Broadway podcast on the Longacre Theatre, Richard Maltby Jr. and Jennifer Ashley Tepper share the most fascinating stories about one of Broadway's least explored houses. What Longacre show was saved by Eleanor Roosevelt? How did an actor almost die of smoke inhalation at the theater? In 1978, Ain't Misbehavin' moved into the Longacre without a completed set, with a director who'd never done a Broadway tech, with a stage manager who couldn't count to eight, and with 48 hours until the final dress rehearsal... and became that season's Tony Award-winning Best Musical. Learn about one of the Longacre's most triumphant historic moments from the man who made it all happen. To view the slideshow of the Longacre Theatre over the years, visit our YouTube page here: https://youtu.be/y3AD35XHRJAProduced by Dori Berinstein and Alan Seales.A proud member of the Broadway Podcast Network.

#64 RICHARD MALTBY JR- The Creation of Miss Saigon


"I had such a great time with those two sessions, I'm wondering if you'd like to do a third. With Miss Saigon opening in March, I wouldn't mind doing a detailed description about how that show was written. There's a real story there and it's never been told. " And with that email Rob and Kevin quickly secured a location to sit down and hear Tony Award winner Richard Maltby Jr look back on the creation of Miss Saigon. Richard pulls back the curtain on the creation of Miss Saigon, including how a stage manager got him onto Miss Saigon, what was the controversy behind Jonathan Pryce's casting, and why Miss Saigon needed a revival in 2017! Also, Richard shines the spotlight on Cameron Mackintosh, Lea Salonga, and Nick Hytner! Note: Due to supernatural forces beyond our control, Rob's mic cuts out towards the end. It was either a glitch or the ghost of David Belasco being mischevious.
