Did you know there were musicals based on comics (besides Spider-Man: Turn of the Dark)? Well, we explore them and their impact in this wonderful live show from Flying V Theatre's Awesome-a-Thon Vol. 3, their annual 24-hour fundraiser.

Featuring Chris Klimek's point of view and the heavenly voices of Kari Ginsburg, Don Mike Mendoza, and Anna Grace Nowalk with Heather Hurley on piano.

Also: Patrick sings and plays guitar and talks and there's a slideshow you can't see because you weren't there but can see but you can follow along with if you go to this LINK!

Have you seen Love Letters? You should see Love Letters. It's a play. And a perfectly cromulent one.

Tony-nominated actor (Starmites) and director (Amazing Grace, Lippa's The Wild Party) Gabriel Barre is our first guest to be in the original Broadway cast of the show we're discussing, and you will soon see why. Rags famously ran for 4 performances on Broadway but nevertheless was nominated for 5 Tony awards and has survived through the years due to staunch advocation by its devoted fans and creators.

Topics include: opening in Boston without a director, learning on the job, John & Jen, and (to the delight of at least one of you) Starmites.

Featured recordings: Rags - A New American Musical (1991) •  Starmites - Original Cast Members (1999) •  John & Jen - Original Cast Recording (1996)
