She made her Broadway debut in The Bridges of Madison County, then went on to roles in Finding Neverland and Fiddler on the Roof (in which she famously says she played "Dead Elphaba"). She most recently performed with Kristin Chenoweth in her show Kristin Chenoweth: For the Girls, as well as her own solo album. More info via http://jessicavosk.com/recordings.

Recorded the day after Josh received the news that his beloved show, The Prom, was closing, Leslie and Josh lament over why show business is one of the worst to work in.

Lesli Margherita is an Olivier Award winning actress who made her Broadway debut in Matilda in 2013 after a successful run on the West End in Zorro, which earned her the award. She was recently in Dames at Sea here on Broadway, but made a big splash in the entertainment scene in 1997 in the TV show Fame LA. She is now about to open Emojiland off-broadway, headlining with none other than Josh himself!

In partnership with TodayTix, Jessica Vosk was part of our first-ever live event held at WeWork in the Flatiron district held on Nov 14, 2019. According to Josh, she's the second coming. She literally went from a finance job on Wall Street to Broadway, with a little bit of a NJ balloon festival in there somewhere.

Vosk may be best known for her performance as the lead role of Elphaba in Wicked, which she recently finished playing on Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre. She was Elphaba for Wicked's 15th Anniversary. She made her Broadway debut in The Bridges of Madison County, then went on to roles in Finding Neverland and Fiddler on the Roof (in which she famously says she played "Dead Elphaba"). She most recently performed with Kristin Chenoweth in her show Kristin Chenoweth: For the Girls, as well as her own solo album. More info via http://jessicavosk.com/recordings.


This episode also features Samara Ariel Ehrlich, NYC's foremost Moana impersonator (who we first heard in episode 4) giving a special live-only introduction.
