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.

It's the Tonys on Sunday!!! And so we're talking the Tonys with Kari Ginsburg and Roddy Flynn. We go through the nominated revivals (5:56) give our thoughts on the shows up for Best Musical: Mean Girls (26:26), Frozen (44:05), SpongeBob SquarePants (56:46), and The Band's Visit (1:08:04), and then tell you our predictions (1:21:17) for who will take home that spinny award Sunday night!

AND you can follow along with us during the ceremony in TWO (2) ways.

Kari, Roddy, and Patrick will be live tweeting from Patrick's living room using #OriginalCastPod so you can keep up with our thoughts and joys and snarks.

And, during commercial breaks, they'll be live on Instagram @OriginalCastPod for some in-person reactions.
