Run the Dish with Tony Nominated Broadway Star Nancy Opel

Run the Dish with Mario Bosquez

On this episode of Run The Dish, James-Beard Nominated host Mario Bosquez has a “Run-On-One” with Tony-nominated Broadway Star, Nancy Opel.  Nancy dishes out some fascinating insights into what life is like on Broadway, explains why talent is a myth and shares the vocal techniques used when shouting and screaming on stage, and much much more including her favorite recipes featuring Nancy’s special “Witches Brew” potion for ailing throats. “Teaspoon of Trivia” looks at the classic slapstick comedy gag of slipping on a banana peel, but did you know that joke is based in reality?  And finally, in the fruit, vegetable and nut world (where we learn little or nothing and it rarely goes well) Mario speaks to the Queen of fruits, Mangosteen, and tries his best not to mention fruit flies…  All this and more on Run the Dish! Be sure to subscribe so you never miss a show, and leave a review if you enjoyed as it really helps us out!  Enjoy!  Remember, Run the Dish! (Because that food ain’t gonna cook itself!!!)

You Might Know Her From Urinetown, The Toxic Avenger, Honeymoon in Vegas, Sunday in the Park with George, Fiddler on the Roof, and numerous David Ives productions. Nancy generously walked us through the Urinetown experience as it is an all time favorite theatrical piece for both Damian and Anne. Nancy also dished on making her Broadway debut as Patti LuPone’s cover in Evita, being unable to hear her co-stars in The Ice Storm, and becoming the go-to replacement for heavy hitting roles on Broadway.

Nancy Opel just finished up a 14 month run as Madame Morrible in a little show called Wicked. This queen is also learning Mandarin. You know, in her free time. There’s a bunch of kitty talk. The musical Urinetown (that Nancy was starring in) opened the same week that 9/11 happened. We talk about how that impacted the Broadway community and NYC. Nancy doles out gorgeous advice about putting in the work, not giving yourself an “out,” and saying yes. Steven & I talk about our first Opel moments. We also hear about some magical musical moments including the time Nancy was in the room listening to Mandy Patinkin sing Finishing The Hat for the very first time. We love you Nancy!! ***** Next week we will drop a special BONUS episode with Nancy Opel, who we did a fun live podcast with at BroadwayCon!
