Playbill writer Logan Culwell-Block stops by ostensibly to talk about LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS but Patrick and he nerd out pretty fast. Topics include: How should a cast album be produced? Early versions of how Seymour killed the dentist. And why in the name of heavenly glory would you autotune Jerry Orbach?!?

 

Featured recordings:

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS - Original Cast Album (1982)

EXPERIMENT - Mandy Patinkin (1994)

COMPANY - Original Broadway Cast (1970)
