Rank #1: 817 - Broadway Masterclass (April 25, 2018)

Podcast cover
Read more
Frozen recently opened on Broadway, and we got a chance to talk with Jeremy Chernick, the effects designer for this tech heavy production. He talks about his job and work on this show, Alladin and others, as well as offering techniques to achieve FX gold on a dime budget. Following this, we have two excerpts from what might as well be called Broadway Master Classes. Broadway Lyricist Glenn Slater has been writing with arguably two of the most influential composers of the past 40 years, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Alan Menken. He has two shows currently running on Broadway, wrote lyrics for Galavant on television, and has a career, it is safe to assume, that any lyricist would sell their soul for. He didn't sell his soul, however, but spent years honing his craft. Here, he shares some of what he has learned. Book writer Rick Elice, came into the theatre by an unusual route, and became a book writer later than some others, but he has made a huge impact since his debut with Jersey Boys. Taking in a Tony nomination for that show and a second for Peter and the Starcatcher. With more shows in the works, this new titan discusses his various theories about what different techniques make a book work, using examples from his past and upcoming shows. The full versions of all these interviews are available in their complete, unedited form at broadwaybullet.com, so be sure to check those out. Now, let's discover how the masters of Broadway do their thing!
