The newest episode of Mo Brady and Nikka Graff Lanzarone's The Ensemblist podcast, entitled "Married Couples," is now available. In the episode, married Broadway couples talk about sharing life with another person in the Broadway community, from fateful meetings during rehearsals, to the challenges of working in separate cities, to weddings filled with theater people.
Guests include Kat Nejat (Lysistrata Jones) and Ben Thompson (Matilda The Musical), who met in 2004 while performing with the Atlanta Theater of the Stars tour of Joseph and the Amazing Color Dreamcoat, and Megan Sikora (The Nance) and Barrett Martin (Nice Work If You Can Get It), who first crossed paths while performing in Wicked on Broadway. Additionally, cocreators and hosts Brady and Lanzarone share their own stories of long-distance relationships with their partners.
Upcoming episodes will include a discussion about what it takes to be a dance captain for a Broadway show as well as interviews with actors who have performed in the same show for more than two years.
