The Original Cast

From Broadway to off-Broadway to the West End, this is a podcast about original cast albums and the people who love them. Every musical theatre fan has that one album that changed their life and playwright-filmmaker-professor Patrick Flynn is out to find it. We talk to the people you see at the theater be they on-stage, backstage, or in the house.
