Hi listeners! We have a cram-packed pOZcast for you this week, which just so happens to be #50 since we began the pOZcast in late 2012! We’re very excited to share this episode with you, and we have some little changes in it that we think you’ll like! Here’s a run-down of what to expect in this week’s episode:
– An exclusive interview with Sarah Schenkkan, former ensemble member and understudy for Glinda on the 1st National Tour of WICKED! Shira and Isaac chat with Sarah about her career, memorable stage door experiences, and several more exciting topics! The interview starts at 51:40 into the podcast.
– The return of our “Sessions with Kristine” (with Kristine Reese, former Nessarose on the 1st and 2nd National Tours of WICKED), this time with a chat about the controversy about different touring agreements that is going on right now and about celebrities and pop stars being cast in major roles in Broadway shows. Kristine does a great job explaining what is going on with the touring agreements, so be sure to give it a listen if you’re interested! The session starts at 7:04 into the podcast.
– There is no cast update this week, and only one media article, so we will bring those back next week! Also beginning next week, we are going to alternate between having a panel discussion (as we used to do) and having theatre news! So be sure to listen for the return of our panel on the next podcast.
It’s a very full, but very fun episode! Thanks for helping us make it to 50!
