Jason is the artistic director for the Helen Hayes Award-winning theatre company Flying V. He and Patrick discuss the concept album of CHESS and how it cemented their friendship. Also: singing in restaurants, the glory of synth rock, and the nature of love. Seriously, it gets deep for a minute.

   CHESS - Benny Andersson | Tim Rice | Björn Ulvaeus (1984) http://amzn.to/1Sr0sFE

Welcome to The Original Cast’s first Intermission. Every other week in between interviews, we’ll release something that was cut due to time but was just too good to keep to ourselves.

Our first Intermissionee is actor, singer, & teacher Evan Casey. Evan will be back in a few weeks to discuss the original Broadway cast recording of LES MISÉRABLES. Until then, here’s Evan’s story about the time he met Mandy Patinkin.

Evan can currently be seen at Signature Theatre in THE FLICK now through April 17. Tickets are available at http://www.sigtheatre.org/events/2015-16/the-flick/
