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.

As you may or may not (but probably may) know, over at our Patreon page we have a patrons-only podcast called The Original Cast at the Movies. It's a long-form movie discussion podcast about musical movies.

In 2018 we've had guests like as Tia Shearer Bassett, Kari Ginsburg, Lee Liebeskind, Tracy Lynn Olivera, Michelle Polera, Jason Schlafstein, Courtney Laine Self, Holly Twyford, and Emily Zickler talking about classic movie musicals like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) & Beauty and the Beast (1991), cult-favorite movie musicals like The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) & Xanadu (1980), and From Justin to Kelly (2003).

So here's a 10-minute sample of our latest episode featuring Emma Jackson (Brigaddon 1990) and Farrell Parker (A Chorus Line 1975) talking about the holiday classic: White Christmas (1954).

Happy Merry!
